Rock N' Roll.

"There will come a day when my body can no longer do this.
Today is not that day."

This quote from the shirt of a fellow runner was our adopted motto for Saturday's half-marathon run.

Was it easy? Not at all.

Did it hurt at times? Most definitely.

But am I glad we did it? Absolutely.

When the seven of us girlfriends decided to sign up for this last summer, I wasn't fully convinced I would follow through with it. It sounded like a great goal, but if it didn't work out...eh.

There were certainly times during the training process that I thought I would just stop this nonsense, especially given the oh-so-lovely spring we'd been having (running in the rain isn't so much fun).

But I am so happy that I stuck it out. Accomplishing this goal with these ladies was a very incredible feeling. To know that our bodies could be pushed and would allow us run 13.1 miles, to know that we are healthy enough to make the decision to do a run like this...it makes me very thankful.


And to see my little squish at the finish line was the best reward ever!
