I'm amazed!

Seriously, it's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to something, train, and have complete determination!

Never when I started running back in 2003, the little 5k's I did when I was about 230 lbs, did I ever think I could run anywhere NEAR 18 miles!  But that's what happened this last weekend!

The last 4 miles were rough for a friend of mine and I walked a little bit with her.  But the stopping and starting was hurting my knees so I asked if she minded if I ran the last 1.5 miles and she was fine with it.  I did go back for her and run in with her at the end though.  But yes, 18 miles complete!!

Only about 1 month until the marathon!  

I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend!


  1. Congratulations! That is amazing! I stand in awe of you.

  2. That is so great Amanda - you go!!
