Who do you admire and why?
This is an interesting question. What sparked it was while eating my breakfast this morning, I overheard a conversation between two boys. They were probably 12 (give or take a year) and they were heatedly debating who the best basketball player was. One was insisting it was Kobe while they other held fast in his Shaq love. It made me smile a little as I remember having very similar conversations as a kid. Who was the best and why? To be frank, we still have them today. My husband and I are constantly talking about who’s the best in the NFL in their respective positions. Do we ever really grow out of the hero-worship phase?
So I thought, who is my hero? I will say that I wish I could be uber lofty and say it was some famous political pioneer, or a famous writer, but really mine is an athlete. Kara Goucher to be exact. I find her to be an inspiration to me. She is a fighter, a runner, and a woman. I am in awe of her and she pushes me to do better in my own training. I find her relatable and very down to earth. Runner’s World did a huge spread on her this month and I devoured every word! Sometimes people just inspire you for all kinds of reasons and some of them can be personal. I only hope that on a much smaller level I can serve as an inspiration to people around me too!
Who inspires you?
