Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!

Typically I would be participating in the carbo loading that many people are doing today in preparation for their half marathons this weekend, but that is just not in the cards for me this year. Two years ago, this weekend, I was running my first half marathon with my friend's C & J. What an amazing accomplishment! I remember crossing the finish line with tears in my eyes and was greeted by hugs from my sister and other spectators. I was untouchable and thought I could take on the world...

After Cap City Half in 2010 (My First)

So what did I do? Signed up for the next Cap City Half in 2011. One year ago this weekend I ran another half marathon. I roped my friend J into running this one. I again cried at the end, I think it was because I knew I would be doing the same thing again in the fall with another 13.1 tacked onto the end. However, I once again felt like I could take on the world.

Finishing Cap City Half in 2011
So what did I do? I signed up for the next Cap City Half in 2012. Because I am still unable to run I will not be crying at the finish line, but will instead be there to greet some of the greatest friends I have made in a long time with hugs as they cross the finish line!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck to Andrew, Laurie, Mandy, Sue, Amy and Lynne. I had the honor of training with you all for many, many hours this year. You've listened to my stories from life and about past races. Now it is your turn to tell the story of your first, tenth, fifth, eighth half marathon and I will be there to listen!!!


  1. You. Are. Awesome. That's all. Thank you for being there today!! You ARE the best cheerleader!

  2. I read this on my phone, but couldn't comment from there. You. Are. Awesome.

    If I hadn't failed in 2010 and 2011, we would have run our first half together! HA!
