A letter to my family

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you…

You all have cheered me through every step of my journey this year

You have endured all the crazy weather conditions right along with me – the heat, the snow, the torrential rain – your enthusiasm never waning, celebrating every step, every mile, every finish.

You donned “Cheering with Attitude” t-shirts, you carried banners, you even gave out high fives to other runners.

When I said I wanted to run a half marathon you never questioned – ok Dad you may have once…but even then you were kidding 🙂

When I said I was going to run 2 more halfs with other races sprinkled in – all you asked was where and when

You have loved and supported me every step of the way – through every training run, through every ache or pain, through every race. Of course, this is not rare – you all have supported me no matter what path I’ve traveled in my life…so really this journey to be a runner is really no different.

So as 2011 draws to a close, I thank you – I’m very lucky to have such a support system and I love you all!
