I have so many blog posts to catch up on now that the blog appears to be back in order. But first, I have to interrupt those posts because today, August 3rd, is a special day in my little world.
Four years ago on August 3rd, I crossed the finish line of my very first marathon.
I am one of those people that likes to celebrate anniversaries of milestones in my life, and this is definitely one of them. That was a day that changed me for the better, and has helped to shape me into the person I am today.
The fact that that day was shared with Kristin, who I met training for that marathon and is still one of my very best friends, makes it that much better.
Little did I know when I headed into San Francisco this morning for a trail run with Jojo and Alyssa that we all shared this anniversary in different ways! A couple miles into our run, I interrupted our conversation with “you guys! Today is my marathoniversary!” Which then lead to the realization that it was an anniversary for all of us.
Jojo, who works for SFM, was involved with the race for the first time in 2008. So she shares my SFM anniversary from behind the scenes. Then we realized that Alyssa moved to SF on August 3rd two years ago.
August 3rd is definitely a good day in my book and I am so glad I got to celebrate with a couple of my favorite running partners in the foggy hills of the Marin Headlands.
Now I will get to recapping a couple great weeks of training, the month of July and talk about my North Face training cycle that started this week, in addition to a couple posts I have promised all about trail running. Stay tuned!
