So, this year started with an amazing goal, to do the Tough Mudder in Whistler in June. Then my main support for my training was GONE for when I needed to ramp up my training! Sidelined by life- when something has to give the training for this was it.
I was feeling a bit bitter and jealous of anyone who got to do it!
How did I get to the Marathon?
First- I have wanted to do a marathon for some time.
Second- An amazing friend, Cheri Fiorucci, who writes on blogspot “the world through my shoes”, inspires me. She has run many marathons and helped me realize I could too!
Third- I got inspired. I went to a function back in May for the Ben Towne Foundation- and left inspired and committed to making a real difference with this charity. As I started combing their site I saw they had a team for the Portland Marathon- so this week I started. I am scared I won’t be ready but I will do my best and I am so excited to help increase awareness for the Ben Towne Foundation!
Wish me luck!
