|The theme for an art exhibit at the Arlington Center for the Arts - |
perfectly sums up the marathon experience for me.
~ To my husband, for his unconditional support and understanding of my crazy running habits.
~ To KH (aka Team Bacon) - for running with me, talking about running with me, bitching about running with me, being an amazing running partner and and being an incredible friend.
|KH & I after the Providence Marathon last May. |
We were most likely planning our next one in our
heads while this pic was being taken.
~ To Coach Ladd for providing advice, support and humor and helping to keep my feelings of doubt and worry at bay.
~ To Greater Boston Running Co. in Lexington for providing great running gear, emotional support, good humor, a fun place to hang out and most importantly my PR shoes (fingers crossed).
|PR Shoes - John hasn't|
let me down yet!
|They all hugged us after |
this 20 miler.
~ To dailymile, for keeping track of the 450 miles I've run over the past 4 months and linking me up with other runners who are doing the same thing.
~ To Trampas and Pedro at New Balance for aiding me with the transformation of my running form which has helped me become a more efficient runner and most likely kept me injury-free (knock on wood).
~ To Apple's iTunes for supporting my music exploring, sharing and purchasing habits.
~ To my daughters, Rosie & Grace, for both understanding & not giving me a hard time when I have to run instead of skiing/playing/hanging etc. with them.
|This is a cute shot but if you ask them, they'll |
tell you that watching the race is boring, "especially
the long ones". They are REALLY good sports.
~ To Coach Greg McMillan for creating a plan specific to me and my goals that was both challenging and incredibly rewarding.
~ To my friends, family and all the RWM readers who listen and respond to my stories, complaints and issues without questioning why I continue to put myself through it over and over again.
~ To my legs and feet for carrying me and my head for helping me keep it all together (sort of).
Regardless of the outcome of this race, thanks to all of you for being who you are and doing what you do.
