Emily and I are runners. We love it. Our husbands think we're crazy, and have even called us addicts. ;o) And really... it's hard to explain.
It's about the quiet rhythm of my very own feet carrying me to different patches of earth. It's about moving forward...regardless of what is happening in my day, my life. It's about celebrating the fact that I have some control over my health. My heart.
It's about starting something. And finishing.
It's about strength, and weakness, and journeying on through both.
And it's so fun to share it with one of my closest friends.
2009 is a big year for us. Emily and I both turn 30 this spring, and Matt and I will celebrate our 10th anniversary this summer. It is a year of milestones. Celebrating life, and running strong through it.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to run a marathon with one of my closest friends.
Emily... God willing, our feet will carry us through the beautiful city of Missoula this July. I look forward to celebrating milestones with you as we train to cross 26.2 miles together.
Oh my gosh. I am so freaked out... ;o)
