I was on vacation last week and spent a few days in York, Maine, and was able to just completely relax before Marine Corps training begins (this week!). I spent some quality time with my family, friends, and loved ones and it was just what I needed to recharge. My little cousin, and basically identical twin, started running last week and decided to run the Four on the Fourth with myself and my friends. She took a chance, a leap of faith, and did an unbelievable job. I was so proud of her and she really inspired me to take a chance. Life, and running, is all about taking chances and jumping at opportunities. If you don’t go out on a limb, you’ll never know what you might be missing out on. So here’s to taking chances, I know I will. Happy running!
