Growing up as gymnast, I loved having a routine to follow and was used to hard criticism and disciplined exercise. So this year I decided that I wanted to go back to that feeling of strength and motivation. I worked harder physically and mentally than I had in years and I’ve never been happier. This journey was emotional for me because I got in touch with who I am as an athlete again. Thank you to my coach for pushing me and making it so fun to struggle. It’s not easy but that’s the fun of it. Never be afraid to challenge yourself because you are physically capable of more than you know.
