I received this good news by email yesterday. I honestly don’t know if the news has sunk in quite yet. Last year, my only goal was to finish my first marathon. I surprised myself in a big way when I crossed that finish line in 3:32:53. I cried, I laughed, I tried to BREATHE just thinking about all the hard work I’d put into my training. We all sacrifice time, sleep, and social lives (at times) to run our butts off. Us runners are a hardcore crazy bunch! Wouldn’t have been able to accomplish a BQ or celebrate properly without the “running friends” (the best friends a girl could possibly have!) that are always there to encourage and support. Now I have my 3rd marathon on the calendar!
