When I signed up to fundraise for this race I was more nervous that I wasn't going to make my goal. Now I'm only $25 away with 81 days to go! I am just truly touched by all of the donations and thoughts. It really has made myself want to push harder and make everyone proud:)
Training has been a little difficult lately but still pushing thru. I am so blessed to be able to run with an amazing group of women who push me to my best each and every day! Even though this is my second marathon I feel so much more emotion this time around. I believe it is because I'm running for a purpose!

So this is my first blog I have ever done. Please bare( sure it's misspelled) with me! Today I had a 9 mile training run. My friends and I started inside on the tread because the weather sucked. After a couple miles we went outside. I must say the rain was actually refreshing. I guess I won't really have a choice to quit if it rains the day of the marathon.
While thinking on my run I realized how amazing individuals with cancer truly are. It was then I realized I couldn't stop! They have to fight everyday for their health. It really inspired me to keep pushing forward.
I'm fortunate that I can go out and do this. I don't want to take it for granted.
I hope you all have a wonderful day to whoever reads this;) since I burned about 900 cals I'm going to go have some lunch now!
