Don't listen to those who say, 'You're taking too big a chance.' Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today

Day 30 – A photograph of yourself today + three good things that have happened in the past 30 days

Well this 30 day challenge has come to an end. It was hard work trust me. (real talk)

So here is me today its blazing here in Florida. I had to put water down on the track just so I could place my hands and do starts.

3 Good things that happened these past 30 days

1. I had a difficult conversation with a friend. One that I did not want to have but, feel so much better now for having it. There is nothing worse than having thoughts that you don't think you can share. Of course it was not as bad as I imagined. : )

2. I reconnected with an old friend and we are getting on really well. You would not believe we had not communicated in 5 years.

3. I am in great shape.

And with that my 30 day challenge is over.

Thanks for reading

Day 25 – What's in your purse?

Come on now thats a little personal. lol

Ok here goes as I dump the contents on my bed and reach for the camera.

Sun Glasses
Hair Brush
Mini Purse - Inside I have deodorant, lip gloss, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, tooth brush, pain killers, hair bands

Though I would also do my back pack also after all I have this duel personality thing going on.

The back pack actually now getting ready to type this makes me think I should down size. I have a workout daily just carrying this thing around. lol

2 pairs of spikes
1 pair of trainers
12 cones
Crop Top
T Shirt
Hair brush
Sun block
Weight room gloves
Training diary
Drinks bottle

Day 24 – A photo of something that means a lot to you.

This was kinda difficult being here in Florida with not so much of my stuff
I looked around my room and saw these

Must be a reason why I pack them and take them with me always. So I think they will be the perfect answer to this question.

Also I added 'Mr Froggie' he is actually some 15 years old. My cousins gave him to me one xmas when they were like 5 years old. Told me he would bring me luck when racing.  When its out of the mouth of babes you kinda have to listen right? I take him on all track and field related trips. So yep he made it to Florida too

Day 22 – Favorite book of last year

This book touched me when I read it last year. It had me go through all motions. I laughed and I cried. I cringed and I pondered.

" Orphaned by the death of her mother and left in the hands of a sadistic foster parent, young Cupcake Brown learned to survive by turning tricks, down hard liquor, and ingesting every drug she could fine while hitchhiking up and down the California coast. She stumbled into gang banging, drug dealing, hustling, prostitution, theft, and, eventually, the best scam of all: a series of 9-5 jobs.

A piece of Cake is unlike any memoir you'll ever read. Moving in its frankness, this is the most satisfying, startlingly funny, and genuinely affecting tour through hell you'll ever take."

Yep its a trueie

I have to add one more book 'The Help'  By Kathryn Stockett.
I just heard this book is being turned into a movie. 

Day 21 – A photo of something that makes you happy.

That would be my nephew.
He's growing every day and gets funnier and funnier.
Little smart ass
