No WOman is an Island

I may have run the marathon but I had a lot of help from my friends and family. My hubby supported me in my training. He would ride his bike while I ran my training routes. But that wasn't the only thing.

Beth came and met me at mile 19. She ran the last seven miles with me.

 And, if that wasn't enough to keep me going, my kids came out and joined me, along with my sister and my son's gfriend for the last 1/4 mile before the finish line.

And that wasn't all. Even my cyber friend, Jen, sent me presents to congratulate me.

So, finishing the marathon was cool but having friends and family who support me is the most important thing. Sometimes we forget what's really important. I don't want to ever forget.

PS: I wasn't getting any of your updates and didn't know why, that's when I noticed you weren't on my roll anymore.

No idea why?

At any rate, you are back on and I am super duper happy for you.

That's so great that you had company at the end. I would love it if some of my peeps could join me for the last three miles of the half marathon.
