My own Academy Award speech

I’d like to thank the Academy…..or maybe this sums it up best.

Thank you….

….to my heart and soul for showing up for my 16.4 mile long run today
….to my shins for displaying a new level of toughness
….to my husband for coming out to check on me just when I needed it most
….to the wind – wait, scratch that.  After 2 days of gusty winds, we are presently not on speaking terms my BodyGlide for covering all the right places
.…to my husband and friends who are injured, yet make a point to support me and ask about my run
….to friends who have told me I inspire or motivate them (what a gift to know that)
….to my blogger friends who continue to inspire me through your running and non-running experiences

The wind, a stomach issue, and bad sleep all kicked my butt today.  But you know what?  I kicked back.  And boy, that felt good!


  1. Way to go!!! You conquered the workout and that is fantastic!

    1. THanks Christi :) I like the word "conquered" for this!

  2. I love this post! Way to kick back!

    1. I'm wondering if "claw" might've been a more descriptive word. It sure felt like I clawed and kicked me way thru it :)

      But I tell ya Mandy, I can't imagine carrying an Avery on my back - now that's strong!

    1. I'm pretty sure I uttered the same words when I finally reached my house...woo hoo! :)
