Slight Turn of Events
Immediately after Nationals I was gung-ho to go to Europe and chase a P.R.
Since then, plans have changed.
I’ve decided to hang up the spikes temporarily and take an extended break from the sport.
I am headed back to Oregon for the summer. My soul, my spirit, and my passion need to be recharged.
I am scared, I am nervous, but I am also excited. I did not achieve my running goals this year but I have decided to take this as a new opportunity, a wake up call. I never wanted my personal identity to be defined solely by who I am on the track but in my dedication and intense focus throughout the past 8 years, I realize I have been blocking out a huge portion of myself and life. Its time for me to be reminded again of who I am outside the oval. I love running and competing and I am not ready for this phase of my life to be over, I just want to learn how to incorporate and express my true self through it better. That is my new summer mission.
Call me crazy, but wish me luck! Thank you for understanding!
