For some reason I decided 4 months ago to start running. My first goal was 5 km. It wasn’t easy but I did it. Then I decided to do Glow Run in Eindhoven 18/11, but that is a 6 km run. I had my doubts but I kept believing. Today I am proud to say that I just ran 7 km, so my next goal is 10 km. 💪🏻🏃🏻♀️#believeyoucan#nosportyspice#ididit#7km#nooitgedacht#trotsopmezelf
Hard work pays off!!!! 💪🏼 🥈 Bam ✨✨ Weken.. uh maanden werken... het was het allemaal waard. Ik ben trots op wat ik al bereikt heb, ik heb veel geleerd van dit proces en ben nog gemotiveerder om door te gaan. 💪🏼 mijzelf te verbeteren maar ook om anderen te helpen! Maar eerst even nagenieten, bijkomen en die prep-heks verbannen. 🙈Ik heb wel wat goed te maken met sommige mensen. 😘 En dan plannen maken 👉🏻 @team__samensterk 💪🏼
Just a few pics from a fab day. My first half marathon. The first of many! Plus new challenges and experiences!
Running has taught me so much.
That I can do it.
That with hard work and tenacity I can achieve greatness.
That progress and growth are as good as the medal.
That I can be proud of myself.
That euphoria and adrenaline are a heady mix.
Taking a break from the pain, while Chris encouraged me to keep going. **********************************Just before we reached the 2 hr point, I felt a pop in my left shoulder. My rotator cuff muscles had decided that it was enough. Lifting my arm for every stroke was excruciating and the current was too strong to swim breaststroke continuously. There was a point where I wanted someone to tell me if I'd make it or not, hoping they would say, enough, you can't go on and I could get out of the swim and into the boat. Realizing that I was the only one who could give the honest answer, and the only way to answer was to push through was one of the most defining and empowering moments in my life. Thanks to the swimmers, Audrey and Fernando in the boat, who clapped and cheered for what what seemed like hours, for the amazing support #acneg#thejourneytoswimgibraltarstrait#canjadventures#ididit
, ❣️ I worked hard to get to the place i'm at now. I stayed up for hours and hours , spent hella time getting alot of work done. staying up at 5am doing work, Doing 10+packets and still turning it in early , to get more. Finishing 2-3 classes in a little amount of time. I ran across hard shit and managed to teach myself how to do what I couldn't at first , and still managed to get straight A's 4.0 , I ain't have shit but 5credits , I cried days thinking I wasn't going to graduate , sat up trying to plan my life without a diploma in it , thinking I was going to have to settle for a GED. Not because I was stupid.. I was going through shit that got in my way but at the end of the day I managed to pick up where I left off at!. Now i'm graduating 4months early , going to college to further my education and make my goals come true. I went from having close to no credits , to completing highschool and doing what I thought I was never going to be able to accomplish. Not even on time , but 4months early.. I'm very proud of myself and those nights and long days paid off. #dt ❣️ I was going through alot and still stayed focused , I know what i'm capable of , and I never let the negativity take over me. I accomplished what I pushed myself to accomplish and I have other things coming ❤ . This is only my beginning 🙏 Thank you jesus for keeping me strong and helping me find the light. ✨ #hardwork#Ididit#Thankyoujesus#February 🎓
I'm speechless. I still can't come up with the right words of how I felt tonight. So many emotions, no words to explain all the feels. "All good ones though" this journey has been life changing. From being sick the first couple weeks of training and pushing hard to stay strong, those intense foam rolling nights, passing out while having conversations, "sorry about those " feeling at times unmotivated and stressed out, endless support from friends and family, having amazing and inspiring leaders by my side who would always give me the right feedback to grow, training with strong and encouraging individuals and being able to do this today and lead my first spin class with all my communities. Words will never express that feeling. Every person in this room has been a part of my life and tonight they showed up just for me. From family to childhood friends, ex managers, new manager, coworkers, interiors design school partners, yogis and acro yogis, mentors and new rush friends. My heart is full. I have been blessed to have people like you in my life. I am surrounded by love and just so you all know I love you back. Thank you for showing up and for being a part of this experience and the new chapter in my life. #rushcycle#spinning#ididit#loveyouall
