OK...not really!!! BUT...last year while attending Time Out For Women the lady that was the MC for the whole thing, who was quite a large girl, talked about how she was reading a Runners magazine and how just holding the magazine made her feel like a runner!! Well, this weekend 9 of us went up and ran in the Pinetop Cool Runnings run. Bruce, Shawna, Lori, Marinda, Allyssa, Carly & Jami all did the 10K, and Tara and I did the 2 mile Fun Run. Eventhough I didn't do the 10k I still feel like a RUNNER!!! I was proud of myself for doing it!!
A BIG Thanks to Tara for doing the 2 mile and sticking with me!!!
Carly, Jami, & Alyssa
I have to tell my sister how amazing I think she is!!! She will never know what an inspiration she is to me, not just in running, but in lots of ways!! The last mile and a half of the 10k was ALL up hill and she never stopped running!!!! Lori, Marinda, and I walked back down the route to find her and she was just headin up the last part of the hill, and it was so neat to see her still pluggin away at it. She is simply AMAZING!!!
Me and my awesome running partner Tara...dang I love this girl!!!!!
Tara, Bruce, Shawna, Alyssa, Carly, Jami, Lori, Me, & Marinda

I also have to tell Marinda & Shawna thanks for always encouraging me to keep going!! You guys are such amazing friends and I don't know what I would do without you both!!!
