A race on a 2 year race anniversary

Two years ago I ran my first half marathon. Disney’s wine and dine. I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t know anyone, Tho I met 2 amazing women who were just the nicest people ever. Had no idea I would fall in love with the sport as much as I have but I did. I’ve met some of the most amazing and inspirational people and made some best friends. 16 halfs and 2 fulls later I am still going strong. Each race I learn something new. Wether it’s about myself or what to do or not to do. As I completed my 16th half on Sunday, it seemed fitting to be wearing the wine and dine tee as I was freezing from a cold wet race. Some races are more of a struggle than others but unless I am dead I will make every effort to cross that finish. It shows me that no matter how much it hurts you can survive and push through. It’s been a roller coaster of a few years but here I am still standing. Sometimes with the help of friends. The journey isn’t ever meant to be easy. If it was easy. Everyone could do it. I’ve earned my medals. Keep on truckin my friends

Miami Marathon 2014 Finish Line

26 miles of hell and .2 miles of bliss

Two weeks ago I completed my 2nd marathon. It was truly 26.2 miles of pure hell. I had trained and it had gone well. The weather was even looking perfect. I had discovered that my optimum race temp is low 50s. However, the temps had spiked the few days prior and my goal time finishing was not looking good. I remained optimistic but I had a plan b and plan c in place. The only time when I plan it seems.
