"I originally started to train for this marathon to help me grieve the loss of our greyhound, but I found so much more in the process- self-confidence, pride, a sense of purpose. At some point in the future (once I can feel my legs again) I'm sure I'll want to challenge myself and maybe get a BQ! I read your blog whenever you post something new and I've found much inspiration in your posts. Thanks for helping me get started." -Meg

Sidenote: If you have kids and I am totally annoying you with my "carefree vacation weekends" that involve zero responsibility, I totally get it. I realize I don't have to wash nine million loads of baby onesies and clean up after children with sticky hands who manage to destroy a clean house within 15 seconds. I am able to minimize the cleaning and laundry and I realize not everyone has that luxury. One day, I too will understand your pain. And I have mad respect for all y'all!This weekend was no different than most except for a little extra cherry on top which was Sunday.
