I appreciated all your wonderful comments yesterday regarding my second thoughts on running.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I didn’t realize until yesterday that I am not just running this marathon for me, but I am running it for ALL of you.
It wasn’t until Aneta (my marathon twin) commented that she needs me and she cares if I quit running, that I realized how my training for a marathon has actually morphed into something bigger and how it affects more than just me.
The blogging community has become a place to give and receive ideas and feedback. A place where we support and motivate each other. A place where we are encouraged and celebrated when we push ourselves to new limits.
So readers and fellow bloggers, I am ultimately running this marathon for ME as way to prove to myself that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to and to push my body to limits I never thought were possible. But secondly, this marathon is for YOU.
I want to be your virtual running partner, your inspiration, motivation and your cheerleader. I am excited to look forward at this challenge and leave all the doubts behind me. Because we are all in this together now!
Let me know in the comment section when your next BIG race is so we can cheer you on along the way!
