A letter to my competition

Dear competition, 


If you catch me looking at you before a race, know this: I am not judging you.  I am not sizing you up.  I am not fearful that you are better than me. I am not thinking that I am better than you. 


I'm simply acknowledging you, appreciating you, and feeling grateful to race alongside of you. You may have some strengths that are my weaknesses and I may have some strengths that are your weaknesses, but together we fight to the finish with the same goal in mind. 


If it weren't for you, there would be no race, no competition, no determination, no motivation and no will to win! Your talent, dedication and discipline fuels my fire each race.  So when you see me looking at you, know that I am silently thanking you for pushing me to be the best athlete that I can be! Copyright: Kimberly Trefilek

    I'm really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been utilizing? I'm having some minor security problems with my latest site and I'd like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
