There was just something about this day that made feel a sense of accomplishment and triumph like I have never felt from any other race. Slowest pace, most rewarding race. I kept telling myself.... “the slower I do this, the longer Jonnie (my power buddy) gets to be out here enjoying this. And that was my mentality of the slow pace I ran ❤️ I want to say 1 more thing.... if anyone ever feels like my posts are “too much” or I post things for “attention” you have me all wrong and please don’t follow me. I don’t post for a pat on my back or for recognition. I post to motivate others. To get out there and make a difference. I was the “power walker” 6 years ago. This wasn’t always my life. I do what I do today because it’s my passion and I do it and talk about it in hopes to inspire and empower others, ESPECIALLY WOMEN! I hope I can make an impact 💪🏻 #mymotivation#specialcompass#miamihalfmarathon#powerbuddy@specialcompass@jim911911@jhoel_gaona
Medal Monday! This is when athletes proudly display our accomplishments of the weekend. While this was not my accomplishment alone, I look at this photo and I am brought to tears. 17 years in a row. Every weather condition possible. Many podium races , always striving for a PR. This year was different not just in pace but ensuring someone else’s experience was good and safe. This is now my favorite Miami ! Special Compass is not only an amazing experience for the rider but it stretches and grows the buddies pushing and the community as a whole The runners around us were initially a little annoyed or surprised by us but then began to traffic each other to let us through. So many people embraced us with cheers and thumbs up . 👍 It was amazing ! Thank you to those that donated to my fundraising campaign for this event. We have a long way to go to reach our goals of inclusion but days like yesterday show just how much progress has been made. Already planning 2020! #specialcompass#mamaswan#mentor#coach#runner#believer#serve#givesomethingback#grateful#team#warrior
