Thirty-two weeks pregnant, and hardly able to walk more than a couple of miles at a stretch, it's a little hard to believe that a year ago I ran my first marathon. My already-heightened set of emotions surrounding the race skyrocketed when the Boston marathon bombing occurred, six days before my race. As is true with most runners, ever since that day, every time I am out on a jog there is at least one moment where my mind turns to the bombing. While the thought saddens me, and makes me feel for the individuals and families affected, it also reminds me to be grateful for the legs carrying me, grateful for the people around me, and gives me energy to push on. Runners are a willful, dedicated bunch, full of strength, stamina and commitment, and the Boston bombing, instead of tarnishing this, cemented it.

Someone who believes in me ...

I have mentioned before that I have only recently discovered the social aspects of running. It has truly changed my life. I have met some pretty inspiring athletes along the way, many I am blessed to call “friend”. 196 more words


The long run ...

I had a sucky 2-mile run today. I had a decent 3-miler yesterday, that included a hill, so I was pretty happy with myself. But that’s just how running goes. 245 more words
