A Miracle Fiber Called Courage

"Human beings are made up of flesh and blood, and a miracle fiber called courage." -George Patton

A Miracle Fiber Called Courage

Today I truly felt like it was a battle between courage and well lack of brains at times. Today I had to run 15 miles and I am not sure why but it felt much harder out there than last week. I ran from my house, to the lake and out east lake road to Honeysuckle, then back up Oakridge Rd, back into the city with a last loop around the college to home. It felt like war out there to me. I lost feeling in my wrists and hands with 1 mile to go and I really just kicked it in and gave it everything I had. The winds were a huge factor today and most likely the reason I am so winded. Though here I am less than an hour after my 15 mile run eating lunch and getting ready to play with the kids! Thank you all for the lifting of my spirit you have been giving me out there. Without you all I would be nothing! Today I truly felt like I had a miracle fiber called courage.

Miles for Miracle Update- Week 6 in the Books!

Today concludes Miles for Miracles week #6. So far together we have all raised $1467. The Wal-Mart check still hasn't been credited as well as another. It takes 7-10 days for checks to show on the site. My goal is to run 1000 miles by the Boston Marathon time as well. So far after week six, I am at 215 miles run and the big mileage weeks are starting to kick in! I want to thank you all for your support!
