I have to thank my husband. Back in high school, I came up with a big list of stuff I wanted to do someday. One of the items was to run a marathon, and I don't think I would have done it yet had it not been for my husband encouraging me to run longer distances. I must admit, when he first started running, I was kind of jealous and crabby about his success and follow-through. But now, I am happy for him, and myself for stepping up to the challenges. Sorry to sound all corny and Brady Bunch, but thanks Justin!

My husband and I laugh about our different running styles. Mine is "Zen Running" because I like running more for the meditative qualities and don't care too much about the speed. For him, it's "Macho Running" because it's all about conquering a certain time or distance and oh yeah, did I mention the medals? Sure, it's cool to say I've done a marathon, and it will be even cooler to be able to say I've done the Walt Disney World Goofy Challenge (half marathon on Saturday and full marathon on Sunday). In fact, one week from today, I will be done with the half marathon part of the Goofy Challenge and awaiting the full marathon Sunday morning.
