in the end, my mind won. it defeated my gut instinct. my natural desire to do something other than for no reason except for it felt right. i left work, forgot about my blog urge and went home to play with my family. until....my dear friend, jennifer, sent me a message reminding me that yesterday was our one year anniversary to surviving the austin marathon!!!
my heart sank and lifted all at the same time. i instantly knew my gut was right and i was a schmuck for not listening. so, today my friends - one year and one day after i crossed the austin marathon finish line, i want to show you what its like.
this was taken by holding out my cell phone. it not great quality and it at the end of my 26+ mile hill run but you get the point. except for one thing you can't hear - i was listening to linkin park numb in one ear bud and the crowd cheers with the other. i was surrounded by the cheers and motivation.
happy one year and one day anniversary, austin, jennifer & cheryl. we did it!
