First and foremost I am in total awe of the ladies running this 1/2 marathon! I am not a runner by nature, however, this group has inspired me beyond belief to not only run, but to enjoy it AND be competitive with it. I am not a competitive person by nature, but when it comes to running, I seem to have a little bug in me that makes me want to, need to, have to go faster. I think that is probably the “layman’s” definition of competitive nature.
I believe my husband respects me more knowing I can beat him in a run, short distance anyway, and I think he likes to see the part of me that actually wants to compete and PUSH myself beyond what I thought I could do. I know I would not be where I am at without Stroller Strides, and this group who has encouraged, pushed, inspired me to be a good runner. I can say that….I can, I am a good runner, it feels good and I think everyone on here should share something positive that they respect about themselves for taking on a challenge like RUNNING! It is hard on your body, mind and spirit, and yet is so awesome and theraputic when doing it with friends.
