marathon monday: 15 weeks

Runners are interesting folks. Interesting in a good way. In the best way possible. Runners are non-judging. I will totally admit that I judge people. Whatever. Judge me for it if you want, but it's true. But when I'm running, I don't judge other runners. And they don't judge me (as far as I know). If you're out there running with me in the snow, in the cold, in the rain, I am in awe of you. I am amazed by you. I will give you a wave, say "Good morning!" and smile. And, I hope, you do the same.
2012 was a good year for me. I did a lot. More than I ever thought I could do in a year. I branched out of my box, made a lot of really amazing new friends and had fun. I challenged myself, succeeded and made the most out of my days. I also failed, but that's ok. I'm ok with failing. It's a part of life. I loved with my whole heart. I became a better version of myself.

And now here we are, on the cusp of 2013. I have exactly 15 weeks until the Boston Marathon, and I'm confident. I won't be breaking any records at the race, but that's fine. I'm ok with that.

I only have two resolutions for 2013 (so far).

  1. I will finish the Boston Marathon running and with a smile on my face.
  2. I will do my part to eliminate cancer in my lifetime.
I'm keeping it simple this year. And I hope you will continue to join me on this journey. Thank you so much for following along on my adventure, for your loving comments and for the friendships. 

Happy New Year, friends!
