June 27, 2009 Run for Logan

Sunday, November 16, 2008


Webster's Dictionary describes an athlete as:

"a person trained or gifted in exercises or contests involving physical agility, stamina, or strength; a participant in a sport, exercise, or game requiring physical skill"

I cannot be described as someone "trained or gifted in exercises or contests involving physical agility, stamina or strength", but merely as "a participant in a sport". . . My name is Sarah, and if you asked my parents two years ago if I was a runner, they would have laughed at you.... I probably would have laughed at you too! A year ago, inspired by a great friend and Iron Man (Woman) finisher, I began my own journey as a runner! This journey has included weeks straight of running with a partner, weeks where I did not run at all, and a few planned runs that turned into walks to the local Starbucks!

A high school friend of mine once referred to my house and family as "Mayberry"- I grew up with two very supportive parents who encouraged and supported me in every crazy interest that I brought home... When I was very young my mother asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.... I responded as any young, impressionable girl would have...."mom, I want to be a princess...." she smiled and said "....yes Sarah, ,but what are you going to do to make a difference in this world?"

I have not completely figured out the answer to that question....but for now, I am going to run toward making that difference....
