Friends and believing in myself!
Marathon training has been a journey, many ups and many downs. But my cheering squad has helped me throughout my training. Every mile, every step I have to think about – land my foot properly, don’t over exert yourself, don’t aggravate your Dystonia. What many often don’t know is that every step is a conscious thought..next week I will run my longest run yet 6 hours…and today I woke up with some foot pain and some knee pain but I am so close I can see the finish line. I decided that this morning will be my last run and I know I can do this next week.
I want to thank every text, email, post on this blog, wall message on my Facebook – I couldn’t have done this without any of you. You all reading this have no idea how you have made me the runner I am today and the marathon star I will become. I joke and say I will wear my medal for a week…but I probably will. 10 years ago when I wrote in my bschool essay that it will be a miracle if I ever have the chance to run a marathon…well that miracle is very close and this blog is just to thank everyone who has given me love and support on this journey.
