This year has been one hell of a ride starting with a new half-marathon PB, reaching 1,000 followers on Instagram followed by finishing my first ever marathon after quitting smoking.
Running has become the most rewarding activity in my life helping me overcome my fears, my doubts, my concerns etc. If I don't get something I wanted that is okay because there are many others things out there for me to grab. A wish is something that lasts for a while, a dream is something you don't forget until you get it.
When I stopped smoking, the beginning was hard and I thought I was not going to be able to do it. Nonetheless, six months in I knew I was done with it. After getting used to running, I was having a hard time understanding my body. I had no idea how my body reacted to several activities or situations.
My running community continues to expand and I can only say thank you to all of you who continue supporting me and pushing me to be a better instructor, leader, and guide to all.
