Today, I will choose happy and not let the world bring me down. I will replace the negative with positive thoughts, people, and experiences. Today, I will not let other’s opinions reflect how I see myself. I am proud of who I have become and all I have accomplished.
Today, I am asking questions about myself to find where I can improve and see the achievements I have made. I am grateful for coaches to push me to be my best self. Today, I am happy to find new ways to include my family in my training.
Today, I will look for happiness in the present. I will continue to train and work toward my goals. Today I will think about my purpose and what it means to fulfill it.

Today I will celebrate with the world by running 3 miles on Global Running Day. As I run I will think about how far I have come in the past year. Last May, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. This May, I have no evidence of disease, ran 231 miles so far this year, and signed up for a marathon.
Today, I will let myself enjoy my run. I will not let fears of the future obstruct my goals for the present. Today I will focus on good memeories and following my training plan.
Today I am proud of putting this team together and crossing the finish line with these amazing ladies. I see many more races in my future and challenging myself to step outside of my comfort zone. Today I realized the moments along the miles are what make the journey. Whether is 3 miles or 32, these experiences wouldn’t be possible without the first step.
Today I am going to enjoy running. I will be thankful to be outside and enjoy the sunshine. Today I will remember why I am running- to be my best self and encourage others to do the same.
Today, I look forward to sharing with the world 32-MILES RUN CLUB. I can’t wait to see how we will grow and change the view of survivorship. Today, I will celebrate my victories with others and keep on training to reach my goal of running 32-MILES.
Today, I believe my goal of 32 miles is attainable. I am proud of myself for running a half marathon. Today, I know I am worthy. I am strong. I am full of grit.
