“I can, I will” During my first 1/2 marathon of 2014 I was coming off a bad last 1/2 marathon of 2013 and hoping for a new PR. I did up until mile 12 and hit the wall HARD. I had joined a pace group and the pacer was pulling me through. She said “Just keep saying to your ‘I can, I will’ until you get there!” I did that I not only did I get there, I got that shiny new PR as well.
Why do you run?
I started to run to do something “for myself.” Now I run because I can! To show myself, and others, what this body of mine can do. Every race I run is a reminder of just how amazing our bodies are.
Favorite place to run:
Along the water. I live in Florida so its something I can do often :)
Running gear you can not live without:
My Brooks transcend running shoes, my RoadID, and my Garmin
When not running where would we find you?
Reading, baking, and spending time with friends! Since I blog I spend a lot of time enjoying the great city I live in.
Favorite post race fuel:
Cupcakes! I don’t have a “Will run for cupcakes” necklace for nothing :)
Song you want to hear at the finish line:
Run the World (Girls) by Beyonce
