Be fierce, protect that dream

This dream has become my Odyssey

Believe it’s worth the fight

I recently read an article that changed my perspective. It gave me the ammunition to keep going. Amber Radcliffe shares an inspiring piece that makes me hungry to go after my dream. Today’s Haiku is in response to words that give me strength to not back down.

I bookmarked Amber’s article, and have a feeling I am going to take a few screenshots of the parts that stand out to me. It is filed with exactly what I need to hear going into a string of marathons that will enable me to dig deep and accomplish my dream of running Boston.

Today I realized I am ready to fight. I have been preparing my whole life for this, and I deserve it!
