Check out this motivational movie - I actually had a few moments when I had that tingly feeling just before tears begin to fall from ones eyes. Very cool.

I love running. I originally started running shortly after my son was born in an effort to lose the baby fat. In the midst of a 10K that I hardly trained for, I started to question myself. I realized that I could do better. I could go farther. So I did a little research and set a goal for myself. To run a marathon.
I love a challenge. To me, running a marathon was the ultimate challenge. Besides, I had given birth twice and I reasoned, that it couldn't be more difficult than my first delivery (30+ hours of labor, 4 hours of pushing alone). So, I created a training plan with the help of my 'friend',Furman and off I went. A year later (there were a few setbacks along the way, injuries, etc.) I crossed the finish line at the Portland Marathon.
What an amazing feeling! I felt as proud then as I did the day my two sweeties were born.
From a recent Asics print ad: "I run because it gives me more than I give it. No matter how much energy I burn, it gives me back even more energy. I don't know how it works. I don't want to waste any energy questioning it."
