It is pretty ironic...a long time ago, I decided that a goal of mine would be to run a 5k. Steve is an avid runner and I thought it would be great to start running so that we could run together. For anyone who knew me way back when, you know I was not a runner. In March of '09, I ran my first 5k and it was such a great accomplishment. I got away from running races for a little while but then back in October of '09 I did a 10k. It was totally amazing! But through all of these races, either Steve was away on Army duty or he had to work so he couldn't run with me.
I ran a 5k last weekend, ESPN the weekend 5k! It was a lot of fun but sad at the same time because I couldn't enjoy it with Steve (although hanging out with Carol and Jonathan afterwards was awesome!). Well this weekend, I have my Princess Half Marathon. It is something I never thought I could do. Running is something I wanted to do with Steve and now the biggest run I will ever do and he won't be here to meet me at the end...
BUT...everyone tells me that the deployment is the hardest thing I will ever have to do. In my opinion, this half marathon is the hardest thing I will ever do physically so if I can get through this, I can get through the deployment!
