Spirit of the Marathon

What is the spirit of the marathon? Good question. Until I go through the final event, I will not have an answer for you. But, I can tell you that in my opinion, the spirit of the marathon begins the moment you place your foot on the training path. It's getting out there an doing something for other people (in this case, we all raised over $10,o00 for blood cancer research!!!). For me, that moment started 4 months ago, and we're now 2 days away from the event. I feel stronger, happier and excited to be going through this process. It has been a gift and there is such a huge connection to spirit when I'm out there running. When I ran our 20 miler, there was a point where it was sheer human spirit that was pulling me along when my body wanted to quit. It's just plain awesome.

We saw the movie, "Spirit of the Marathon," tonight in the local theaters. ( It was completely inspiring!!! I know that my life will change when I cross that finish line. I only have one first marathon, and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it!
