On Saturday, June 26th, I ran the Seattle Rock & Roll Marathon. The full 26.2 miles. To say it was incredibly difficult is an understatement. I pushed on through the pain, through the exhaustion. It was a mental game the last several miles. My body screamed STOP, but my mind forged ahead. It was worth it. I ran for all those who cannot. For all those who are fighting the battle against leukemia now. For those who have lost. I ran for my mother, who could not be here today. I ran for myself, to prove that I still have that drive, that will, that power to persevere. And I ran becaue I wanted to see if I could. Now that I know I can, I will probably not try again. (!)
I DID IT!
