I woke up this morning just feeling very thankful for all the family and friends that I have in my life. I keep my cane in my car trunk and see it everyday when I go to pull out my gym bag. It reminded me yesterday that my running is not only a product of my own hard work but also for those of you that cheer me on from near and far. I am thankful that my parents have always supported me in crazy endeavors. I am happy friends have always offered and enjoyed to run with me at my pace. And I am thankful for all of you who believe in me. The cane is always a constant reminder of how not to take life for granted and to enjoy each workout like it was my first. And my tri medal which now sleeps with me, reminds me how proper training, family and friends and sometimes even the help of strangers can help me truly feel like I am a living miracle.
So today, is all about thanks. I have a half marathon in less than a month…Please don’t forget to donate so others get a chance to have a miracle as well!
