I ran for my hero yesterday. I ran when I wanted to quit because I never let him quit. I ran because I had such a cheering section going for me on Twitter that I couldn't let them down. I ran on because Luau was waiting to run me in at mile 23 when he'd already finished hours ahead of me.
At mile 18 I hit the wall. I started saying the names on my jersey over and over again in my head to keep myself going. I had to walk the better part of the next 3 miles. I then saw a shirt that said, "Honey Badger Takes What She Wants" and I took it as sign from the village to get my butt moving. I ran on because My Gurl was waiting at mile 26.
I ran on because Super Cuzzy drove up from DC to support me and take care of my kids.
I ran on for all 3 of my little darlings and Big Daddy who haven't seen much of Mommy on Sundays in months.
and for my best friend D. who loves me and supports me no matter what mess I get myself into on a regular basis.
But my biggest reason for never quitting was my hero, Boy Wonder. He is my inspiration for doing all that I do every day. Him and his sisters.
Thank you again to everyone that supported me yesterday. You were all with me at the finish line. I swear. Look here's your medal.
