A Quick Update

3:15:33  A new PR!

It will be a couple of days before I can get my race recap up here.  Thanks to everyone who followed me with the text updates on their phone and then commented (here, on facebook, or through email) with congratulations.  I enjoyed reading each one!  Of course the PR makes me happy, but the story of this race is a complicated one, and I will share it all soon.

One thing I did want to quickly write today was about an AWESOME poster I saw along the course.  This poster kept me going the whole race.  I literally repeated the words in my head dozens of times.  It said, "There will come a day when you will not be able to do this.  Today is not that day." 

If you are needing some motivation today--maybe just for a run or maybe for a marathon or some other race you are going to be doing soon, really think about that for awhile.  On Sunday, I ran even harder as I thought about these words.


  1. Oh my goodness, I LOVE what that poster said! I am going to start thinking about that too! I love it!

  2. Wow, you are amazing and inspiring! Can't wait to read about the marathon!

  3. LOVE that quote!! Thanks for sharing that!
