It's always good to have a friend who is constantly supporting your goals, pushing you a little harder than you push yourself and challenging you to reach a little higher than you normally would. The same one is usually the one to give you a lift when you most need it, or a smack upside the head when you're being irrational, and let you feel sorry for yourself for long enough- then kick you in the butt if you go on for too long. She'll gripe when you need to gripe and cheer for you when you're down and snark when them moment calls for it. She will pump you full of motivational sayings and inspiration even if she doesn't believe in them herself at the moment to make sure YOU have the best ride of your life.
Yep. Friends like that are invaluable.
The last words I remember hearing before going into the start box at May Daze and that I left chanting were Megan's: "Fight for it." And sometimes that's all you need to hear.
