I had a hard time choosing. I picked three photos. The first one I chose because it reminds me that I can be brave and face my fears. Just over two years ago I went bungee jumping with some girlfriends, and I was terrified, but I did it, and it was amazing and exhilarating. I need to remember this day when I'm scared of something, because jumping off a bridge was by far the scariest thing I've ever done.
This next one is of me and my little sister, when we were little. I love everything about this picture. My little sister is such a light in my life, and always has been.
And, I wanted to include a picture of myself and my older sister, Stephanie. I picked this one because she inspired me to start running, which led me down the path I'm on now. This is us during the San Francisco Marathon (first half) in 2010.
