This year Stonyfield is a sponsor and official yogurt of the 2014 Boston Marathon. Today was race day and I have been able to see snippets here and there on the news. As if the racers weren’t inspiring enough as it is, to overcome such devastation to race again this year, makes my heart swell with pride. Each glimpse of the news I hear or see tv brings tears to my eyes, I can’t even imagine attempting to run a race while experiencing such emotion and I can only attempt to fathom how awesome it must be to be a part of today’s race after what took place last year.
While I may never strive to race in the Boston Marathon I think it’s important to reflect on the fact that we each have our own marathons in life, things we dream of, dedicate ourselves to accomplishing, aspire to be. My personal marathon involves focusing parenting and family and on being the best ME I can be daily. As moms we often struggle to maintain ourselves and our own passions while putting our families first.
My Daily Marathon
From getting the kids off to school to working full-time from home, my days are filled to the brim with to-do lists. It’s easy to lose myself in one thing or another but I’ve been attempting to dedicate myself to my yoga practice in the midst of it all. An hour a day 2-3 times a week when I disconnect from the real world and tune in to myself has been truly amazing and I can feel the improvements of yoga on my mind, body and soul.
While I am a Stonyfield Yo-Getter, a blogger who gets compensated with yogurt coupons in exchange for voluntarily participating in Stonyfield opps, I can honestly say that Stonyfield Greek truly helps fuel my Daily Marathon!
I am honored to get to work with such a great company and thrilled they’re sponsoring the 2014 Boston Marathon and that thousands of racers and spectators today are enjoying the same Stonyfield that’s become a daily ritual to eat for me.
What are some of your personal marathons? I’d love to hear what you’re accomplishing or dreaming to!
