As absolutely devastating as losing Julia has been, it has given me an in-your-face reminder of what the most important things in life are: the people we love and the experiences we share together.
I am so grateful for the support I’ve received in the form of encouragement, love, help with my kids, Beverly-care, support from my kids as they told me “it’s ok” so many times when we had to give up something else so that I could get out for a run. SO many friends made sacrifices so that I could pursue this selfish endeavor, and I am eternally grateful for that. I’ll never forget the many hours shared on the trail with Gretchen, Jamie, Steve, Kathy, Julia, Audrey, and everyone else I had the privilege of running with this year. Thanks to my coach, Meghan, for guiding me through the training.
Thanks in advance to my crew and pacers, friends and family who will be out there in person or in spirit.
Wishing all of my friends a safe and magical journey on Saturday. xo
