Back in Saipan when I first started running, my mom asked me if I would want to go to the Olympics. I don't recall my exact answer, but I dont think I said yes. Over the last decade as I've had ups and downs in my athletic career,I've had to keep my focus on my end goal which is now to go to the Olympics.

Its really difficult training alone, dieting when others in your household aren't and waking up to run...since I hate running. But I'm very fortunate to have such an amazing support base as well as reasons I'm striving for the Olympics. I love sports and competing gives me the biggest high of happiness. Knowing that I've worked hard and focused to achieve my goal is very self satisfying. That feeling alone whether small triumphs or large, its worth the pain and stress I train through. What motivates you?
