Cristian: Monthly Accomplishments

I always wanted to find a sport that I was good at and SRLA helped me do that. Growing up, I would see that all of the other kids were good at soccer, volleyball or another sport and I wasn’t good at any of them so when I first heard about SRLA I built up the courage and joined. I was really nervous at first because I thought it was going to be too hard for me. But as it turns out, this organization helped me have a better outlook on life.

Ever since I joined SRLA I have learned that anything is possible with perseverance and dedication. The most important lesson that I have learned from SRLA is to never doubt myself. Every time I cross the finish line of at a race I feel such an immense feeling of accomplishment and self-pride.

With SRLA not only do I stay in excellent physical health, but I also stay in excellent mental health. I now have something to look forward to every month because with every month comes a new accomplishment in my life. Each accomplishment is made possible by this organization. SRLA gives us such an amazing opportunity to challenge ourselves and see what we never knew we were capable of. When I ran my first marathon I knew that nothing is impossible as long as you try your very best!
