Good luck, Jess!

Friday, June 15, 2012

When I first joined Sparkpeople back in 2009, her story was the first inspirational success story I read. I was amazed by her courage, by her struggle as a parent, by her choices and her hard work. She became one of my first Sparkfriends. Without knowing it, she's been one of my best sources of inspiration. She became a runner. I would always read her training blogs with enthusiasm because they would always help me find the strength inside me to follow her example and find the athlete in me. Her race blogs would bring tears to my eyes. Tears of pride and happiness for a friend I've never met, I probably never will but has made a great impact on my life.

Her name is Jess. In the Sparkpeople world, she is known as WANT2BEFIT10.

Tomorrow she's running her first marathon. I really wish I could be there to support her, to tell her how much I believe in her, to celebrate her successful journey in the runners' world. But since I can't do that, I thought I'd write this blog to offer wholeheartedly my best wishes for good luck.

So, Jess, this is for you. A little inspiration for tomorrow. For YOUR day.
You can do this. Your mind and your soul have been ready for this for a long time now. Your body has no other choice but to follow.
I'll "see" you at the finish line!
