To run a marathon!   
.....I was so caught up in the raw emotions of it all....

It will kick off your day the right way!

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to witness the strength and the determination of the human mind, body and spirit.  
I'm red-faced to admit that I never attended a marathon.
I never knew what I was missing.  
Having an up-close and personal look at the training that goes into running a marathon, the true grit, and the heart that it takes to prepare for such an event AND watching it all culminate in a day when even the strongest of the strong are tested has been a life changing experience for me. 
It hammered home the belief that with the right tools--- 

 Scenes from a day in my life that renewed my spirit and filled me with tremendous pride.....
And, they are off!!!

They depend on everyone to keep them running!
My son at the 22 mile marker......

All they have out there is each other and their dreams!
A local Dayton guy wins the race....under 3 hours!
An Ohio woman wins for the women....a few seconds over 3 hours!!!

I'm running a 10K on Saturday and I'm dreading every minute of it! I'm not a lover of running, but I keep doing it. I must be crazy!
I know I will never do a marathon. EVER!
I have a great deal of admiration and respect for people who can be that dedicated.
