Giving it my best shot



Three summers ago, I had the crazy dream of registering for a marathon. Fate took over, and I landed up at the start-line untrained and unsure. I couldn’t do it, walked the distance, and swore never to attempt it again.
But unfinished business rankles. I decided to try one more time. I have trained many months for it. I am as ready as I’ll ever be.
Whether I achieve my dream or not, I would have given it my best shot. I am satisfied.

“Courage is not absence of fear, but the judgment that something is more important than fear.”

Flashback 2011- April

A former treadmill junkie, I had to start running on the road if I wanted to pile up the kind of mileages that I needed to attempt a marathon. Luckily, I found a place I fell in love with, and this photograph, taken during my first ever training run in April forms a part of my Pictoral Flashback of 2011.

Good for you! Your running path is gorgeous! Mine is covered with 24 inches of snow right now...so treadmill for me. Sigh!
I prefer outdoors!
Happy 2012
Hugs
