What Inspires Me

What Inspires Me

This month (November), we celebrate Jane’s 5th anniversary as an integral part of our #Torquenation family! Through this time, we have seen her and her family exude tremendous strength and resilience during a time of tragedy.  We couldn’t help but want to know what inspires her!

So when asked by Jake to write about what inspires me it really got me thinking about how I got to be where I am in life.
I have been handed some tough blows that’s for sure but I have not let them define me.  So after my husband John died, I said,

“Well that’s it I am the only parent these kids have, so put away the poor me excuses and be a person that they can look up to.”

This of course did not happen overnight but step by step I was bettering myself and the greatest influence on my outlook was CrossFit.

Jane Tough MudderI am still a work in progress like everyone but I approach life differently than before, I am happy, my kids are happy and they will always be my inspiration in this life.
