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---
WE CAN DO ANYTHING!
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!|

|An Ohio woman wins for the women....a few seconds over 3 hours!!!|
