Thank you for the friend add, and commenting on my race blog.
I think it helped that I'm kind of a tightwad, because despite the less than stellar training and all of the other problems, I had paid that entry fee and there was no way I was just going to toss it all away.
And yes, that strut was going to break soon anyway. The one on the right side was about ready to go also.
Thanks for commenting on my blog yesterday. Unfortunately, Hubby won't run anything longer than 3 miles, so those long runs will be lonely, anyway. LOL! Thanks for the encouragement, though. After I wrote that blog, I went ahead and signed up for the 5-mile race in July, so now I'm committed!
"If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!" - Richard M. Devos
Just dropping by to thank you for commenting on my blog, "The NSV is Blowing in the Wind." I appreciate the support!
"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life." -Tom Venuto
Its up to you to make your goals and dreams a reality, Sparkfriend! Take responsibility, and do your best each day to make progress. You are totally worth the effort, you know! I hope your week has been great so far! Hugs, Pixie
