I ran my final run today before my half-marathon on Sunday...and I got to do it with BETH!!! It was SO exciting! i've been looking forward to this day for 2 months - since the day she told me that she wanted to try and start running. It has been SO exciting to watch and cheer her along on this journey of hers - not only because she is such a dear friend, but because I know EXACTLY where she's at - I WAS there!! She has come so far and is almost already at her first goal. We had a GREAT run together today. I was chatting away, trying to keep her mind off of the distance we were going. Trying to keep her distracted from the fact that it was SO hot and HUMID. And she did it! I won't steal any more of her thunder - she BETTER post about it on hers, because it was a big day for her. And I was SO proud! So here's our picture to prove it - us in all our sweaty and tired glory! I said at the end of our run "Who would have thought - a year ago - that we'd be running together one day!" How bout that!!! Way to go Beth - I'm SO proud of you!
