Putting It Out There...

I am lucky. I have a great husband, children, family & friends. I have a job I love....even when it frustrates & exhausts me. Even though we did sustain some damage to our house during Sandy, we still have a home when others tragically don't. I am thankful I have the opportunity to run tomorrow when others can't. So I'm going to put it on the line here. I usually keep my goals close to my chest...a quiet hope. But tomorrow I'm going for a sub-2 in the Red Baron Half Marathon. I'm running because I can....even with my bum foot, I can still run. It will not be easy...not by a longshot. When I feel tired & sore I will think of how lucky I am; how I have become strong mentally & physically. My heart aches for all those whose lives have come to a standstill in the wake of Sandy.

....& as always, I am thankful for you :)

YOU can do it! I can't believe the devasation and destruction Sandy left in her wake. I'm on LI and I didn't lose power (1 little tree fell causing very little damage to my fence), yet you're upstate and people all the way in Ohio have suffered because of her. The after-effects are just plain terrifying. Waiting in front of a gas pump 12 hours on Friday had me thinking A LOT. I am grateful that all of my family and friends made it through pretty much unscathed.
