If you are one of my donors you have already read this: New blog post Running a marathon and fighting cancer… http://ow.ly/7h5xV

It feels good to say “I’m training for a marathon.”  Yes, it feels overwhelming at times too, but it is hard to feel bad about yourself when you know you are taking steps every week to increase miles and run easier.  Overcoming obstacles in my training has given me more and more confidence.  The last step is to finish the race, and while I am nervous thinking about it, I feel confident that I will finish.  Hopefully I can finish the run BEFORE they close the course down.  🙂

As of this morning, I have achieved my original goal of raising $2000 for the MMRF!!! So exciting!  I still have 19 days to go until the marathon so I have bumped my goal up to $2500, it would be amazing to go above and beyond!!

 

 

Honestly, I love to run in the fresh morning air.  Something about the cold that burns your lungs and the quiet streets puts me in my happy place.  This is more true since moving back to Washington (summer Texas mornings are not what I would call refreshing.)  But Texas had it’s perks- like days in the 70s all the way back in March.  Anyway, I digress.  There is NOTHING like running through the valley with the sun behind the foothills and Mount Rainier bright and right in front of me, inspiring me to run on.

🙂 Like this quote!! ‎”We all know that if you run, you are pretty much choosing a life of success because of it.” Deena Kastor (marathon record holder and Olympian).
