My Personal Achievements

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!

This picture isn't from the 1/2 marathon.  This picture was taken when two of my children and I ran the Color Run in K.C.  It was a blast!

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.
