So as I posted before I have a pretty huge goal of accomplishing several races injury free this year. Running first and for most was not a sport of choice for me. My husband started running about five years ago. I watched him run his very first race and I cryed. It was a 5k. Then he worked himself up to a 13.1 mile race and then a marathon 26.2. At the finish line of every race he ran I cryed. The first Marathon I stood in the crowd watching all these people cross, kids, teens, adults, 80 year old man ( His shirt said 80 and still kicking). I listened to people cheer perfect strangers on and encourge them to run. I watched as other runners would help a perfect stranger that was struggeling cross the finish line. I knew I wanted a piece of this excietment. I get told I am crazy and out of my mind by my family and friends, I tell them you will never understand until you experinece the thrill of the finish line.
