I am blessed beyond measure.
This I know for sure. I started the day off with 8.4 amazing miles. When I finished I knew for sure that I could easily run another 4 miles if I had the time. Funny how that works. Where was this mojo on Saturday??? Probably in bed asleep.
Where I should be now. 4:30 comes early. Per ush.
Part of my marathon challenge is to raise $2500 for the charity Run for Something Better. Today I held a bake sale at work. I prepared strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting and chocolate, chocolate chip poundcake. I love to bake and I love to make food cute! I cannot tell you what temptation having dozens of cupcakes on your desk all day is. But I did not eat one. Not even one! Okay, so I might have had a few crumbs of cake. Only crumbs though.
My goal was to raise $25. I raised over 4 times that! I am blessed to work with such amazingly generous people! I felt so much support today from each person that stopped by. Gave me some resolve to continue my training at full force. I won't let them down! Three weeks to tapering.
And yeah, I'm already looking for an early Spring marathon. This bidness is addicting!
