#7 - Justine Helminiak - I'm pretty sure you are the energizer bunny and such an inspiration. Thank you for all of your encouragement. It has helped more than you know.
#1 - I don't talk about religion or my beliefs openly with many people. However, I will say that I believe in a higher power that is unexplainable. Whatever or whoever that power is, I am grateful for this beautiful, magical, amazing world we live in. I'm grateful for the ability to become who I am and for the ability to continue this training much longer than I anticipated. I'm grateful for the beauty I encounter on every single run outdoors. We don't have to live in exotic places to find those views which take your breath away. We have them, right here in NWI. Open your eyes, open your heart, and take in all that you have been given. It's all a gift that can be taken from you at any moment. I'm grateful for the ability to be able to do this. To run. To see. To thank those that have given me the gift of a life I love.
