Marathon Reflection

Hello all, in 2000, I ran my first Marathon.   It was the Boston Marathon.  Twenty-two years later, I am still hooked on running 26.2 miles.  Running has been an amazing activity for me.

However, my journey in life has not always been an easy ride.  I had my share of failures and struggles. For example, I always struggled academically. I was very insecure about not being “book smart”.  Never made it through a 4-year college.  Struggled with reading comprehension + writing.

All my failures, I believe, were gifts from higher above.   My path was redirected, which led me to the world of running. I love running!

As I flew back to Boston, I had plenty of time to reflect on the fun events this weekend.   I am so blessed to be able to still run at the age of 52. I have so much to be thankful for.  I am very pleased with all my running accomplishments throughout my life.   I have run many consecutive Boston Marathons for   various charities, at least 17, and many other races that pushed me to reach my best. I am so fortunate to be able to continue running marathons.  I realize some people may never be able to run a mile or even 26 miles. I am so honored to have the gift to run.

 Now at age 52, I have a new running goal. I am going to try to run many consecutive Dopey’s.
