This…truly makes me nervous.  As I have just finished icing both knees, and massaging with Blue Emu cream…I can’t help but to hear those scary voices inside my head saying, REALLY?  ARE YOU MAD???  

But, all I can do is my best…push forward, relish in the 2 days of rest I had, and lace up my shoes tomorrow. 

Let the miles, begin!  Thanks to those who support and cheer me on, your encouragement is needed, welcomed, and appreciated!

  1. Michelle this is SO EXCITING!!!!! I can't believe it's almost here and you are going to LOVE your long run. I always try to remember – I can always slow my pace down 🙂 you are going to feel like a million bucks when it's done 🙂 xoxoxox

  2. I hope my first 20 miler is on Aug 24th or 25th because we hope to join our Run club on Labor day for a 10k race. The training is just the journey to the "party" on Oct 7th! Whoo Hoo!
