Tomorrow is the big day for my team going to the first ever Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon. To make this event even more special will be to see my husband participating in his first half marathon in memory of my Dad.
We run with Team in Training to raise money for blood cancers. In this effort we hope to not lose another friend or family member to one of these horrible cancers.
For Coach Janice and I these events are so exciting. It is amazing to watch the transformation of participants going from beginning runners to athletes. Standing at the start line is like taking your children to the first day of school when you have to let them go. We watch them start, encourage them along the way, and then we get to see them accomplish lifetime goals of crossing the finish line. I don’t think there can be a much better job.
So, good luck to all of you participating in this great event. We love you and you really are Heroes!
