Do I have special abilities that allowed me to accomplish this? NO!
Not even close. I didn’t run track in high school. I’m not fast. Or sleek.
So how does an average, over 60, overweight grandmother get through the 26.2 mile run to the finish line?
One step at a time.
It turned out to be the best thing I could have done. I made friends with wonderful, energetic, supportive women and men of all shapes and sizes. And I did it. I walked and ran 26.2 miles. Twice. Once in practice and again a month later in the Breast Cancer Marathon.
Oh- another nice side effect-I raised almost $2000 for the cause!
