I spend around two and half hours on the track every day running and another 2 hours in the weight room lifting weights with my strength coach.
My mom is great and I make sure that we pray together before every race. She helps me put everything in perspective and remind me of the real reason I run.
The most important lesson that I have learned is to trust God in every circumstance. Lots of times we go through different trials and following God’s plan seems like it doesn’t make any sense at all. God is always in control and he will never leave us.
I have learned that track doesn’t define me. My faith defines me. I’m running because I have been blessed with a gift.
My faith inspires me so much. It is the very reason that I run. I feel that my running is completely a gift from God and it is my responsibility to use it to glorify him.
I grew up in a Christian home with amazing parents.
