packets, the bloody toe nails, the pain so sharp I couldn't walk the next day. Running on Amsterdam avenue along the traffic, feeling unstoppable. Raising money and awareness on behalf of Fred's Team, pushing myself beyond and then beyond the beyond. Walking the last two miles of my first seventeen mile run, and then doing it again the next weekend and FINISHING what I STARTED. As they say, the race is just a happy pay off for all the training. So, congratulations runners. You've done it already."
Let's be honest that statement is true the work goes into the training and the race is a pretty medal (though I do like shinny things) I need to get my butt back in gear there is a 15k to run on the 18th of this month that I have raised the funds for Ronald McDonald House, have put in the time and miles on the road. It the last push in these two weeks leading up to the race why give up now that would be stupid on my part and letting down the people who support me and me. I am not sure what happened in this post but I found a surge of pride while writing it. Tomorrow I will be running 4-5 miles depending on how it feels (I hope outside if it isn't to cold) any words of advice or encouragement are always welcome and I thank you for them.
Thanks for listening and helping me find my surge! I hope you have found yours!
