I Am a Writer

I signed my 13yo up for football yesterday. He told me, "I play football but I am a lacrosse player." I guess his lacrosse coaches explained that he should give any sport he plays his all but he was always in his heart a lacrosse player.
This morning I finally decided that I am a runner. I ran 14 miles up Smithfield Canyon with a broken toe after not running for 2 1/2 weeks. I also need to mention that it was hot, windy, I drank from a stream that will probably give me giardia, and at mile two I had to remove my toe wrappings because they were rubbing and my sock was full of blood.
Blood, sweat, and dirty creek water. Yeah, man. I am a runner!
It's funny that I've done two marathons and numerous other races but when people ask me if I am a runner I always say, "No, I'm a weight-lifter who runs." Today I converted to running.
I also remember the day I decided I was a writer. It wasn't when one of my books released or when I spoke to some group about writing and felt like I actually had a fan. It was in a workshop where the presenter asked us to write on a full piece of paper, "I AM A WRITER!" From that day on I was committed.
What about you? What things can you say, I Am... about? What are you wholly committed to that nobody could talk you out of?

  1. Cami! You are incredible and I hope your poor toe heals. I love these stories! Going to LDStorymakers was when I finally told people outright that I'm a writer. It was a wonderful feeling and now there's no turning back! :)
