An Athlete is….
A mom squeezing in her workout before the kids wake up.
Candace Parker squeezing in one more rep as she prepares her post-partum body for another season of pro hoops.
A woman who juggles work commitments but never forgets her commitments to herself.
That woman on the elliptical breaking bad habits as she builds a better body.
Dara Torres breaking barriers even if she’s not breaking records.
A girl discovering the competent machine that is her body.
A woman discovering the same thing.
By that definition, I'm an athlete.
What is an athlete to you?
