Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for many things! One of them being family and friends – I am thankful for all the positive feedback I received after yesterday’s post.
Some of the comments that stood out to me and really hit home and even brought tears to my eyes:

I never thought you could do a half marathon and look at you now! We are doing it together! I couldn't be more proud of you. What that counter doesn't say is that you’re doing it when so many others aren't or have given up. Think about that the next time you look at that counter.

I can't wait for the day that Evie is an adult and tells you how much she admires you and how proud she is of you.

You are a great motivator and I always look to you for inspiration.

To my wonderful and loving family and friends thank you for your support and thank you for inspiring me to do better. As I run this week I will be remember all your positive support, so THANK YOU!
My wonderful family
