This past weekend I surprised myself...I pinned on my number...stood at the start line...and proceeded to run 10 miles with faster splits than I have pulled out in months! I crossed the finish line encouraged and proud realizing that I may not be so far from my goals as I thought! There is something about that ritual...being surrounded by others pushing toward a finish...being challenged by others all around! It really has the power to bring out the best in us! My take-away...believe that you have it in you!!! Believe that all your work really does pay off!!
