#medalmonday throwback to the half marathon race that started it all!
Not many people know this, but my activity of choice was ballet up until 14 weeks before this Thanksgiving race in 2014, when I randomly read an article on trail running and decided why not train for a half marathon?
Well...my grit was tested immediately by the sub-freezing temps! I had hand warmers, foot warmers, I wore two layers of pants and at least four top layers! My body was not accustomed to running in the cold, yet I persisted until I finished!
"There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications and just go for it." - Judith McNaught - 2 hours ago
