Guinness Book

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Angela Tortorice was certified yesterday by the Guinness Book of World Records. She ran 129 full marathons in a year, the most for any woman in that time period. Although running 2 half marathons is my goal for the year, and an appropriate one for me (although I'm toying with doing a third), I still find inspiration in this woman's accomplishment!


Here's a link about her and her accomplishment, although when this was filmed she had yet to qualify for Guinness: partner.criticalmention.

    In case you didn't know it already... YOU motivate me!

I am ABSOLUTELY motivated by the achievements of others! I may not be able to swim from Cuba to the Florida Keys, but Diana Nyad sets all my motivational cells aquiver. When I read about your HM's, or PB's, or those of other Spark friends... or I read about someone featured in an article for their achievements... absolutely makes me want to go do "what I can", even though it may be far short of what I read about.

    Actually, no. I'm motivated by good health and independence. However, I do admire the accomplishments and fitness achieved by others.
