So today, I got up early to meet the Brooklyn runners at Prospect Park for a group run. Most everyone was so much more experienced than I am, but everyone was incredibly nice. One of my coaches, Jen, stayed with me for the entire run even though I wasn’t fast enough to stay with the group. I can’t believe I did it! The entire session lasted just over 40 minutes. I just need to do the same thing for about another 320 minutes lol 🙂
Even though I have a long way to go before I am ready for the marathon, I realized after today that I can do this! Completing today’s group run was exhilarating and exciting. I am so grateful and humbled with the support of my friends, family and the American Cancer Society. Today is the beginning of the rest of my life!
