Runs in the Family

This morning, I got in my very last run before the marathon. I ran an easy 3.0 miles, without too much concern for pace.

I can NOT believe that in less than 48 hours I will be waiting at the starting corral. I can’t wait to see all this hard work pay off!

 

 

A couple of weeks ago, while in North Carolina, I took some time to check out my mom’s marathon medal collection.

My mom has actually done 5 marathons! She isn’t doing them anymore, but I think doing even one is pretty cool!

 

She ran my first ever 5k with me back in May 2007!

In fact, she completed the Disney marathon back in 2002!  Check out her medal:

I honestly think it could have been my mom that inspired me to race! She has done COUNTLESS races of all different distances in her lifetime. She got to a point where she had SO many t-shirts, that she made them into a quilt!

Check it out! Disney marathon, woot! (Back in the pre-tech Tee days!)

I can’t wait to get MY marathon tee and eventually (after crossing the finish line) that medal! 😀

 

What can I say? My love of racing runs in the family!

I feel like I still have so much to get done before the race! I start school Monday, and I haven’t even thought about prepping for that since I’ve been so focused on the marathon. OOPS! Better get on it!
