"Be not deceived; evil communications corrupt good manners."
1 Corinthians 15:33
So I have had a lot of different things other than my running and training lately going on that have gotten me alittle sidelined but I have to say I have stayed focused through it.... I have had this week off from my regular job to get things done and this morning I got to join my crossfit class again and it felt great. We even did some running and squating which normally I modify those because my running coaches have told me to back off of the leg work and I am not supposed to be doing any running what so ever, but today I did and it felt great!
My running and training is what helps keep me focused in so many ways. I am a single mother with many many responsibilities! I always have leaned on my training and running to help me with this, and I have said it so many times that its like prozac for me... But not everyone shares my same passions... In fact, I have to ignore alot of unnessary gossip & advice from strangers as well as so called friends. But this to me is all a part of life, and I have my goals & I do this thing for me and I do not do this to compete with anyone but myself. My coach Matt tell me alot that I should target someone when I am out running a race, but I have learned from experience over the years with racing and with other things in life that competition with others ruin the sport & can cause unneeded drama. So therefore I do this thing for me and my goals only, and I remain focused on that even when I hear the mess being said...

- Hello I am Stephanie M. Freeman and I have created this to let everyone walk with me through my journey I am taking to accomplish my dream of qualifying for the Boston Marathon.Running is such a passion of mine. When I was 14 years old I experienced a life changing event that gave me this passion. I suffered a brain injury from a car accident that left me in a wheelchair & with no hope to ever walk again. For 2 months of my life I prayed for my miracle, and with strength and determination I proved all my doctors & nurses wrong... I walked again!When I run now a days I let this memory drive me harder than ever to be the best person/runner I can be! So therefore I know this goal of mine WILL happen for me and I will make most sure of it!
