Richmond Marathon 2010′

11-13-10 – In November 2010′; I ran my 1st ever marathon in Richmond, VA after running consistently only for only one year. I didn’t know what to expect; I was scared.. I asked myself many times “why am I doing this?” “Did I train hard enough?” “Am I ready for this?” I put all those thoughts behind me and gave it my all. I focused solely on enjoying every moment of this journey, I met other runners along the way, we chatted, I took in the beautiful foliage around me and just enjoyed the journey. As I approached the finish line that day; I couldn’t believe my eyes! To my surprise; I crossed that finish line in 3:39:25 with a BQ! Truly one of the most memorable days ever for me. A girl that every time she was asked if she would ever run a marathon replied with “I can’t do that!” Today I am currently training for my 10th marathon, recently earned her 45th medal and just put her 75th race in the books! Believe in yourself and nothing is impossible! ❀
