I always try to surround myself with positive and motivated people! I get inspired when I’m with people who challenge themselves. It doesn’t matter to me what the sport or activity is. For me, it’s all about pushing yourself through the moments when you want to give up but you keep on going anyway.
One of my closest friends is a true inspiration! Stephanie Boivin competed on the National Taekwon-Do team for two consecutive World Championships and has qualified to compete for Canada at next year’s World Championships in France for Duathlons!!!!
Stephanie came to Ottawa for a duathlon at Mooney’s Bay here in Ottawa that was put on by Somersault Sports. The whole area was packed with hundreds of athletes of all ages, sizes, experience and abilities. There were several differnent distances and race combinations so there was something for everyone. Some were out to win and others were proud to just ‘be there’. Either way, it’s all good 🙂
I was inspired and entertained by a whole new generation of tiny little athletes. They were absolutley adorable 🙂 They swam at the beach and then ran to the track. They were proud of themselves and were having a blast. This is our next generation of athletes. You’re never too young to start a healthy lifestyle.
I was inspired by a number of athletes. I loved watching the expressions on people’s faces as they pushed through their pain, or when they were jumping up and down just to finish or because they beat their Personal Best. It’s all about setting your goal and going after it. I have lots of important short term goals but I’m the type of person that also needs a big long term goal to work towards. Now I just have to decide what that big goal is?!?!
