I did not run the Half Marathon on my plan for Saturday.. It was the best decision I could have made. I was, and still am, totally exhausted physically and mentally. As much as I wanted to dedicate the miles to Dad I could not race. LESSON: Know when you need to take a break...Speaking of Boston... On Monday 10-18 the registration for Boston opened. During that time I was with my family selecting a grave site, picking out a casket, making all the arrangements to celebrate and honor my amazing father..It was one of the hardest days of my life...At 2PM I went to register but it was too late. Boston had SOLD OUT. I was sad, disappointed and angry..but I could not have gotten there any sooner. I quickly got over it and realized that everything happens for a reason. If I am meant to run Boston 2011 I will, if not, I will make the most out of whatever comes next... Maybe a fun race like Dublin or NYC :)
- I hope that you are all doing well. Stay focused on what REALLY MATTERS in life. Do not let time pass without offering a smile, a hug, a gesture of kindness. You create your own Legacy..
