One of my biggest motivations to weight train and cross train all these years has been my desire to be physically able for my kids. Even before I had a baby, this was one reason I stayed fit. I did this because I always knew I was meant to be a mom even if it required having to wait extra long. I believe our daily actions prepare us to receive our future. I believe in manifestation, so in a sense I created myself as a fit mom years ago. Now excluding occasional injuries, which all athletes face, I am so happy to be able to play without worry of being out of breath. Shoot, I even use proper athletic stance when picking up my boy or toys off the floor. I love that I’m already raising my son to see fitness as normal and to see his mom as a strong woman. I want to normalize athletics in my house, regardless of gender. Being an athlete has been one of the best parts of my life and it’s what connected me to my life partner from day one.
