Nike always seems to get it right.
Last year Antonio and I ran in a 5k for kids with cerebral palsy. The shirts they gave out for the race said, “run because you can.” I just love that. It’s so true though. During the half marathon last weekend, I was running next to a woman pushing her son in a wheel chair. When you see things like that, how can you not feel so grateful for the gift of running? Running has given me more confidence, drive and happiness than almost anything in my life.
Speaking of the half marathon, I couldn’t be happier with my time. I ran it in 1:44.30. My goal was under 1:45 so I was ecstatic. My sister surprised me and came home from law school to watch my race. Such a sweet surprise. : )
P.S. I’m officially back at it!! I’ve been such a slacker at blogging lately and my goal this week is to get back into the groove of things. Life has been so crazy lately: work, run, work, run. Let’s be honest – I wouldn’t have it any other way.
