It's Marathon Week!
Everyone keeps telling me, "there will be another year", but that doesn't take away from the disappointment right now.
To make things slightly better I received my paper confirmation of acceptance into the Boston Marathon via snail mail yesterday. It reminded me to focus on what I can do rather than what I can't. But something deep inside of me still has hope for Sunday.
I need your positive thoughts and prayers (if you believe in that) for my leg. How silly to ask for prayers for my leg when so much of the world is war-torn and/or suffering from famine. I realize that, but I also believe in the power of positive thinking. I also know that you understand the desire to run a race you've trained for. We've all been here.
No matter what the outcome, I will be meeting up with some fellow bloggers like Rachel and Britt in Chicago. We are meeting at one of my favorite Starbucks in Chicago right in Old Town. I have so many memories of North Avenue and that area of the city. I can't wait to meet these girls. They are all amazing in their own right. Whether I run or not, I will be cheering everyone on. Angela is going to do great at this race, I just know it, and I can't wait to see her cross the finish line (for the third time in Chicago).
Thanks for all of your kind words the last few weeks and for putting up with my whining. I have the best readers in the blogosphere! :)
