I had wondered when I started this journey would I be able to finish? Crazy knee, IT band, hammy issues all chalked up to 30 years of running have taken their toll on my body.
But I have worked hard…through long days at work, to kids needing my attention, and even to holidays like today where I’d have much rather been chilling with my girls-I RAN. Some weeks were better than others, but here I am at the tail end of training for my second half marathon and I couldn’t be prouder.
My girls literally made my day by waking me up with their make shift breakfast of bacon and lemon water for me…I came down stairs and they even put a Happy Mother’s Day sign up for me. My husband although not here physically, sent me a beautiful locket to remind me how much he appreciates me…/sigh!
I finished the day with my last long run before the race…and it went amazing! Thanks to my dear friend Carolyn for keeping me going! These last 4 months have been tough, but I am blessed to have made new friends that help me keep going even when I want to quit!
I do so much on my own, but I am thankful for my amazing cheerleaders on the sidelines. Ya’ll rock.
