dreams can come true

10 days ago a dream came true. yep thats right I finished the superbowl of running: THE boston marathon. It was a weekend I will never forget and an experience of a lifetime. I solo missioned about, met some incredible people and proved to myself if you work hard, believe in something enough it can be yours. I want to share with you every ounce of the weekend but I need time. I need space to swallow it all in. I am now a Boston marathoner. Something I will hold deep in the depths of my being forever. I want to share it all, take you along for the ride of the 26 miles through the rolling hills into Boston and all the moments before and after... but I am not ready. I need time to gather my emotions, my ideas and my thoughts about it all. Thank you for your patience and for staying tuned. I promise there will be thousands of words to come.

CITGO I heart you

This logo will be etched in my minds eye forever more. It was a sign that I was almost there...that the FINISH Line of the Boston marathon was so close I could almost taste it. It made me dig deep and run it in like I stole something...
This ridiculous logo will remind me always that it is mind over matter, my friends.
More about my Boston marathoning experience to come...pinky.

Beantown here I come...

well here I sit a bit emotional but lets be honest when am I not a bit emotional? ha. The Boston marathon is a mere days away. It is scary, exciting, invigorating all rolled up into one. Can you believe I, yep me, will be running the oldest marathon in North America? This mara is considered the superbowl for runners and I get to partake. I get to own it, live it and love it! And at the end of the day I really cannot wait. The butterflies are creeping into my gut and fluttering about this way and that but they are the best because if I were not a little bit anxious then I my friends would not be human. The next few days I will most likely be a ball of nerves and excitement. Tmo I will board a flight to Boston and begin the weekend where one of my dreams comes true. One of my aspirations becomes reality and if thats not cool well I don't know what is.

no rhyme or reason...

I loves. not sure why. I just do...

To win the lottery, you need a lot of luck. But to succeed with a certain plan you have put so much work into, you don’t need an awful lot. Things are already heading in the right direction. Your efforts will soon all prove worthwhile as long as you maintain your current level of determination. Do not waiver from your sense of purpose. The time is now right to reach your destination.

If that doesn't put a skip in my step I am not sure what would!

Sunshine and lollies to you all!

Bold and stimulating celestial alignments are providing an opportunity to take a really big, brave step forward. You have been on the verge of doing so for months and now, at last, that moment has arrived. Your deep pool of enthusiasm and inspiration will be rewarded with positive developments. There is a solid chance to manifest what hitherto was merely a figment of your imagination. The future is about to deliver many pleasant surprises.
