Saddleback Memorial Half Marathon
Every post race shot you see has me smiling ear to ear. What you don't see is the grimace on my face when I cramp up at mile 11. You don't see the frustration when I wake up at the crack of dawn to exercise. You don't see the tears of pain as I push to climb hills in training. Running is difficult, and I work damn hard. It may seem that I make these races look easy because I do so many of them and have so much fun, but I can assure you that they are not. No false modesty here. Running is hard and I surprise myself every time. Thank you Laguna Hills for making #16 oh so sweet. Thank you to Suzy and Brian again for being such gracious hosts and awesome friends.
