I can’t sing or act. I’m smart but not superhuman intelligent. I’ll never pen a literary masterpiece or win a Nobel Prize. One thing of which I am extraordinarily confident is that I am an athlete, and a damn good one.
I spent the majority of my youth as a competitive gymnast, dedicating my time and energy to winning state, regional, and national titles. Somehow I also made time to play in a city soccer league for all of those years. I skied the mountains of New England and Colorado on family vacations, and began taking ice hockey lessons for fun. I joined a competitive cheerleading team in high school (if you don’t know, competitive cheerleading IS a sport – have you seen their crazy routines on ESPN?). I even ran track for one meet, but realized, while I loved sprinting, I hated training with distance running.
Now, fifteen years after I quit track, I have run countless 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons, as well as four full marathons.
I’ve grown immensely as an athlete over the years and now I want to help others find their inner athlete as well.
