my journey

Since January, this has been my journey. 
I have been training for my second half-marathon. 
On Sunday I will run in Lincoln, NE. 
13.1 miles. 

This journey is more of a mental one for me than physical. 
I KNOW I can run the 13.1 miles. 

I do this to prove to myself that I can keep going...
that when I am tired of running, I can get into that zone and finish. 
I will do it this time to finish faster than last year. 

My friends and I do this for the camaraderie.
We do this for ourselves, and for some girl time.
We support each other throughout our training,
with shoulders, band aids, and high-fives and smiles and tears.

Will I see you in the crowds in Lincoln?
I like to imagine that you are all out there...

us on.
