Sometimes I Wonder...

I had kind of a rough day today. Thanks to my Facebook supporters Brent, Vicky, Nelson, and Magdalene for the extra encouragement! Your comments may have seemed small, but they really meant a lot to me today. Fundraising stress combined with life stress (sudden impending move) has been taking it's toll. As I'm sure many of you know, long term fundraising projects and blogging like this can be very lonely at times. Sometimes it can be easy to start wondering if anyone is listening or anyone cares. Thankfully, all I have to do is look back at the many mile sponsors and friends I've had supporting me through these marathons and I remember that is not the case.

I tried for an 'easy' 5 mile run this morning and came up very short. This heat is really starting to get to me; even at 5-6am. The A/C in my apartment complex gym has been busted for months now (just one more thing prompting the move), so I've been stuck outside for runs.

Today I also made a visit to the great people at ChiroSport, who have been helping me keep my body put together for almost 2 years now. I was never a believer in chiropractors before I found them, but I definitely am now!! I'm already feeling much better than this morning. I also enjoyed visiting and getting some extra encouragement from my friend, Libby, while I was there; who is doing amazing job of training for her first marathon after just having a new baby in the last year.

Yet another reminder that this whole thing is not about the running! It's about PEOPLE! The people I'm running for (young adults fighting cancer), and the amazing people I meet during the process of this journey.
Thanks again to each and every one of you for being there!!
