What I realized today is that you have to allow yourself to change into the person to want to be. This doesn't mean you aren't a good person already, but if you want to become a marathon runner, you have to start seeing yourself that way. If I always allowed myself to feel like I was an outsider to that lifestyle, I would never fully commit to it. I'm beginning to allow it to be a part of who I am and a defining part of my personality. If I want to change, then I have to actively take part in that transformation.

     Thanks for reading!

Training began on Monday, June 18th, and Kris will be keeping a blog to bring you with her on her journey and she will be raising money for Lakewood Hospital during the process.
