Taking an active posture toward life is important to me. What does that mean? For years, I thought my circumstances dictated much of what I could or couldn't do. There was always something or someone I could blame for the state of my weight, my finances and even my mental state. While it has taken me awhile, a few trips around the mountain, I am finally free to be me. I am free to actively participate in the direction of my life. I realize there are no guarantees, and that life can deal some blows. But, the important thing to me is realizing my worth and my hopes are not hitched to my goals. The goals are have are there to move me toward a life that most closely represents the Jenny I was created to be. When setbacks or tough circumstances come, sure I can get mad or sad, but I can also learn and grow. I'm on here to actively engage in my life's journey. No more posture of just "rolling with the punches" or dealing with the cards I have been dealt. I have a choices and decisions to make. Those choices and decisions will lead to a destination. I want that destination to be a healthy, beautiful, and inspiring destination. My choices must lead me down that path, 5/3/08 First 1/2 Mara complete! 3/29/08 Ran 10 miles under 12 minute mile pace. Almost there... 3/15/08 Ran 9 miles avg pace 12:15 / mile all while a smidge ill. Woohoo. 3/1/08 Ran 6miles. Kept a pace of 12 min/mile! 2/20/08 My new record miles are 4.5 miles.
