Mission Accomplished

“Congratulations. Thank you for participating.” These were the words said to me as a marine put a medal around my neck. All throughout the 26.2 mile course, marines were lined up cheering the runners on, handing out cups of water and Gatorade for us and waiting at the end to put that medal around our necks. 526 more words

Marine Corps Marathon… here I come!

After 18 weeks of training, it is so hard to believe that my marathon weekend is officially here!! In the words of a good friend, (who just did an Ironman!) “training just becomes the new normal.” You almost forget that eventually there is a race at the end of the training program. 356 more words

My First Marathon, Chicago 2014

Why I ran…

I can’t remember a time that I did not run since high school…a couple of miles here and there for exercise.  I ran my first 5K in Maryland in 2002, but I didn’t start running races regularly until 2009 when a few good friends and I started running and completed a half marathon in Baltimore.  1,724 more words
