I used "You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream the more you get." A quote from Michael Phelps in my college essays.I'm not going to say it is a magical quote, but I got accepted to all 6 colleges I applied to.
A point said: Crossfit is helping me to set goal for strength and healthy body versus old goals to be "stick skinny" even of the scale doesn't move or my pants don't get smaller my body will be toned and beautiful :)
When I run, my prayers is not to win. My desire is that no matter the outcome of my race, that I glorify God with the talent he has blessed me with. I pray that my integrity & character are always a representation of my Savior.
