One of these days, I will be back and regularly sharing stories with you. For now, I am in final countdown mode. In three days, the goal I have been training for will be met. I will have completed the Pittsburgh Half Marathon.
I will be celebrating Genre, thanking my supporters for helping me raise money for Kids With Cancer.
I will know my kids are cheering for me from a safe distance with my parents, understanding that Boston changed our plans but didn’t take our spirit.
I will probably not know what to do with myself, because my training will be complete and my life will be “mine” again.
But…I will not forget a moment from today that proves I have changed.
Me: I will be back soon, it is only three miles. That’s not far!
Greg: Cool, we will be here.
Me: Wow. Only three miles! A few years ago, that would have been, “it is okay to go off this exit, the Ponderosa is only three miles off it”.
Change is good.
Hopefully you will cheer me on. Whether from afar or along the Half Marathon course. You have all been great so far. And for that…I thank you.
