We are very excited to announce the winner of the Believe I am and Betty Designs give-away! She is a superwoman herself, Dawn Dolobowsky. Dawn told us a little about herself, “I am a physical therapy student, running coach and Oiselle team runner from the Seattle area. I fell in love with running after college when I was looking for a way to stay in shape and fill up my spare time (a problem I certainly don’t have today!). I’m a mid-packer on a good day, but I’m always striving to do my best and hoping that one day I’ll actually be able to run as fast as I think I can.”
We also had some great comments and discussion. We had a great time goingthrough all the entries. Here are just a few of our favorites:
“I’m dealing with an ankle injury, and have had different injuries for the last five months that I’ve been with mynew team, and it’s been a hard time trying to juggle training, rehab, and school work. A superwoman for me is one of our captains who has been an example of how to handle everything. She had her sixth knee surgery a couple months ago and has only played in 2/4 years at university due to ACL injuries. She has had to manage time, rehab, school work, and the overall stress and impact that such major injuries have on oneself being an athlete.”- MCho31
“The best way to become a Superwoman is to Commit. Decide to be a better you and Commit to the steps forward. Commit to the knowledge others are giving you. Commit to the lifestyle best suited to get you the next level. Commit to the push, strive and aches. Commit to the belief IT can be done. Commit to yourself”.- Catalyst
“I think that being superwoman comes from REACHING to see how far we can go in this thing called life. This year, I am racing the longest I have ever gone (race across america in a two person team), and I can’t wait to see what the limits to my mind/body/soul are. I love hearing stories about women who are squeezing the most they can out of life”!- kacie tri-ing
“It’s amazing how reading what you “know” can remind you what you don’t practice. We really do get stronger when we acknowledge, care for, share with, and support one another. Sport can be one of the best opportunities for anyone–especially women–to discover these things. So glad to have found others who seek out these”- aprildlirpa
“What a GREAT article! I love it when women are supportive of other women and this hits on important points to remember when we are trying to juggle our goals and our responsibilities. I have a full time job, am a pro triathlete, and am managing to complete a full time PhD program in bioomedical science. I learned quickly that I can’t do it all – something had to give – but I always kept sports in my life”.- helenphipps
Thanks everyone for entering and keep your eyes open for more giveaways! Please continue to strive to be super women.
