When I first looked at the Photo Challenge this week, there were two things that popped into my mind.
1st Achievement is when I ran a half marathon. I literally went from not being able to run a mile to running a half marathon of 13.1 miles in 4 months. It is one of the things that I am most proud of. Another reason that I am proud of this achievement is because I ran this half marathon with two of my children, my brother, my niece, and a good friend. I can remember hearing someone say that I wouldn’t be able to do it and I think that was one of my biggest motivators. We ran the Country Music 1/2 Marathon in Nashville, TN. It was amazing!
The 2nd Achievement is getting my degrees. I was able to get my Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree all while raising 4 children. This is something that I felt like I was able to do for myself and feel good about it. It was a personal achievement that no one could help me with and did myself.
Of course, one of my other major achievements is raising this beautiful family. I am so proud of my husband and I for raising such great kids that I kind, considerate, respectful, and fun. They will always be considered one my greatest achievements.
