Brazil Ladies Marathon - I Did It!!!


Wednesday, May 30, 2012


That's me in the purple shirt and shorts. On Sat. the 26th, we started at 4:20 a.m. after 10 minutes or so of stretches. 19 women participated - 15 made it!!! Enjoy the photos of our area in NE Brazil. The captions are the lyrics translated into Portuguese, the language spoken here.

After you watch this, go back to my previous blog and read about the walk. I could not have done this without SP and my cheerleaders!!!! It all began 6+ years ago when I came across this site and determined to take care of MY health.

********************

Two songs in the video:

~ 'Forward Like a Freight Train' written by Alex Ford

Verse
Where are you goin? Where are you runnin' to?
Don't you ever look back? Don't you ever look back?
Is it worth knowin' if you got something to prove?
You don't need to do that, you don't need to do that.
Is there something to be said, for the freedom of a
clear head on the open roads, wherever you may roam

Pre Chorus
And you keep pushing, so much harder every day,
and we can't stop you, no we can't stop you
Just keep on pushing, harder every day,
No one can stop you, They'd never try to stop you

Chorus
From thinking What If I had said something or
what if I had done something and
What if it's too late now, well what can I do but move
For-ward, for-ward like a Freight Train

Verse
Where will you find yourself as you reach the finish line
Will you ever look back? Will you ever look back?
Was it worth knowin' that you had nothin' to lose?
Did you need to know that, did you need to know that?
So where you headed to next? And will you let your GPS,
guide you home? What do you call home?

Chorus
Stop thinking...
While thinking...

Bridge
You need to smash that wall, before it stops you in your tracks
Try to let it go, try to let it go
You need to take what's yours, stop looking to the past
Try to let it go, try to let it go

Chorus
Stop thinking...
While thinking...

~ 'Reach' by S Club 7

When the world, leaves you feeling blue
You can count on me, I will be there for you
When it seems, all your hopes and dreams
Are a million miles away, I will re-assure you

We've got to all stick together
Good friends, there for each other
Never ever forget that
I've got you and you've got me, so

Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
Reach for the stars
Follow your hearts desire
Reach for the stars
And when that rainbow's shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true

There's a place waiting just for you
Is a special place where your dreams all come true
Fly away, swim the ocean blue
Drive that open road, leave the past behind you
Don't stop gotta keep moving
Your hopes have gotta keep building
Never ever forget that
I've got you and you've got me, so

Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
Reach for the stars
Follow your hearts desire
Reach for the stars
And when that rainbow's shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true

Don't believe in all that you've been told
The sky's the limit you can reach your goal
No-one knows just what the future holds
There ain't nothing you can't be
There's a whole world at your feet
I said reach

Climb every mountain (reach)
Reach for the moon (reach)
Follow that rainbow
And your dreams will all come true

Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
Reach for the stars
Follow your hearts desire
Reach for the stars
And when that rainbow's shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true
Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher
Reach for the stars
Follow your hearts desire
Reach for the stars
And when that rainbow's shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true
Reach for the stars
Climb every mountain higher [fade to finish]

    So wish I had the English translation of your video! I LOVED it!

I was toe tapping along to that last song, but when I saw your smile at the finish line I just started bawling! LOL
