I woke up this morning and thought yesterday was just a dream until I looked over and saw this….
I’ll write more later but in short, yesterday was everything I could have hoped for and more. Seeing so many friends and family along the route was incredible. The spectators really brought their “A-games” this year and cheered harder, longer and louder than before. Having a stranger thank you for running is a moving experience.
So was crossing that finish line, that place I’ve seen countless replays of the evil that occurred there last year. But this year, it was all positive for me. No concern about safety, just pure elation.
Thank you to everyone that supported me along the way, from physical therapy to coaching to cheering me on to donating to Gateways. It all just means so much to this runner. You’ll actually never know just how much.
