So yesterday was the much anticipated Chicago Half Marathon. I was writing this blog in my head while I was running along Lake Shore in the beautiful Chicago morning...

I've been running for many years now, but I think this summer I actually became a runner. Something changed for me. I've actually enjoyed training for and completing two halfs. It became a part of my life, not voluntary torture (as I used to call it).

I've come from being the girl who could never complete the 1 mile run on fitness testing day in middle school to the girl who can run a half marathon in 2 hours and live to tell the tale :-) I'm really proud of myself and who knows, maybe there is a marathon in my future?

    You are an inspiration! I am looking to you and others to help me in my goal to run a half marathon. It seems like a ways down the road for me, but a step at a time. I will be checking back to see how your are doing.
