I got this tattoo 8 years ago! I can’t believe it’s been that long. I got this as a statement. A reminder. It doesn’t mean what you think it might. I did get this after I “jogged” a half marathon 😊 but I got it before I lost all of the weight…before I was as fit as I am now…before crossfit…before loving the idea of eating to fuel my body. I got this when I was lost and broken- still trying to get this version of me to the surface. I’ve always been strong. Always been a fighter for others. I wanted desperately to help people find their fight and be their best, but I had to blaze a trail myself before I could walk someone else to freedom!
Endurance Athlete means I’m not a quitter. I’ll fight, I’ll definitely cry but I’ll never quit. I will run my race with endurance! Everything worth anything requires endurance. You have to work hard for your health, for a healthy marriage, for a career that fulfills you, to raise your kids, and the list goes on! Don’t you ever give up! I wore this label on my back for 4 years before I emerged as the woman that I knew I could be! Trust me, I’ve not arrived and I’ll never stop fighting to be better and help others be better. Somebody needs to hear me today. Don’t give up! ❤
