Feeling truly loved.
Do you see that smile? A true smile is one you feel from the inside out. One that only the best of friends can bring on.
I can not even begin to tell you how happy I am right now. Did I want a 3:10? Yes. Did I think to myself yesterday YOU CAN DO IT. Impossible? NO. Nothing is impossible when you have faith. I also thought whatever will be will be. You will run the perfect time. As my best friend Karen’s post said – you can’t always get what you want….but you always get what you need!
There are times in my life I feel sad. Everyone has days like this. I know when I feel that way I will not only reflect on how many things I have to feel thankful for but I will reflect on my 6th running of Marine Corps Marathon and KNOW from the bottom of my soul that people are good, that life is wonderful and that I am surrounded by some of the GREATEST people to ever walk this planet[literally and virtually].
You inspire me. You keep me going. You brighten my day.
I am so thankful for all the many things that running has brought into my life.
I am even more thankful that I took the first step a couple of years ago and decided that I was not afraid. I would put my words out there for anyone to read.
Thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart.
Have I told you lately how much I LOVE RUNNING?

Thank you Lord for all of your blessings – I do not deserve them.
