This is why I am running for Team In Training….

(SOURCE)

I am running my longest run of training today.  20 miles.  I will get through it.  I HAVE to get through it.

Before my run this morning I decided to look at some real life pictures and stories about kids with this horrible disease.  I do not know anyone personally with the disease, so I felt I wanted to put a face (or a few faces) with a name.  Wow.  I found some really powerful stuff.  If all these kids can get through their chemo, if their Mom’s can hold their hands knowing their precious child might die, then I can sure as hell run 26.2 miles and be grateful that I am able to accomplish it.

You’re awesome. Most runners…they just focus on their own performance, and totally forget about what the race is about. You found the best motivation!
