[May] "Memories" - Weezer


I still have a difficult time thinking about May with out getting all teared up.

May was trying, emotional, exhausting, exciting, busy & freaking life changing.
Here's a little more information about the "event" [here].


Part #1.
Part #2
Part #3
Part #4
Part too many
Part - OVER! [the 100.16 mile finish line]

And part-extra finish line photos and interview.

The early part of 2011 I decided I wanted to do something big but for a reason. For a specific purpose.

My little family & I attended the Sojourner Center in the later part of 2010.

One visit.
Just. One. Visit.

And I knew I needed to do something.
While I'm sure they'd have been just as happy if I had pulled out my check book & written a big fat check......
I wanted to take a talent I'd been blessed with & use it to help them.

Enter "The 24 hour treadmill run for Sojourner".

I was just the girl on the treadmill. The real action....was happening all around me.

I'll never be able to express in words my thoughts of this day. Never. And really that's just fine for me. It's the feeling I'll keep forever.

People I need to thank [for the rest of my life]...

Pita - supported me at every point, never doubted me, found my vemma sponsor!!

Mom & my sister happy - they'd have to answer in the time they put into this. It was way longer than any "training" I did. I'm guessing 4 x all my training hours.

Peanut - weeks & weeks of her mom being quite a failure at her "mom role".....I'm big on making her breakfast & packing her lunch...I enjoy it. I can text & run. Talk & run. But kinda hard to make breakfast on a treadmill.

My family - seriously. where are the words? Most of them were there 10+ hours. best family ever . . . . EVER.

Dawn - let's come back for Dawn in a bit.

Channel 12 - amazing. A-freaking-mazing.

Vemma - not just the product. The employees. The staff. Incredible.

Chris & Caroline - GET. THIS.....two people I have never actually "met". Their support.... WOW.

Like this.... [CLICK] Cannot. [to this very day] watch it without crying.
what a freaking awesome mom, woman, runner & wife.

And the emails, iTunes songs [foo!] & have you seen my freaking belt?

Yep, he sent it to me after I did my 50 mile training run on the treadmill.

I freaking love it.

Michelle & Tom. They found the people who loaned me the Woodway Treadmills. Kinda hard to run a 24 hour treadmill run without a treadmill......not only did they find me the treadmills ----- they found me WOODWAY treadmills!!

Aaron - The Pita's work friend who got me into this Ultra running thing by calling me "Barbie" --- sucka! Ran about 22ish miles with me.
Summer - who organized a massive collection [of goods] for the Sojourner Center.

Dawn - well. . . I may have been able to do it without her being there would have been ugly. She doesn't like me blowing sunshine up her [anything] but....we send approximately 100 texts to each other, daily, so she kinda knows I dig her & gets the "sunshine blowing" whether she likes it or not.

And I cry when every I read this:

It is a top three "moment in my life".

No new PR could ever - EVER top this.
Not sure anything other than another child will ever top this.

It wasn't anything amazing that I did.
The event.
The turn out.
The support.
The money raised....NOW that was amazing.

Now......when do I get to do this again?

There are simply no words I can say that would sum up the joy and love that wells in my heart when I think about you and what you do with your running.. Like MZ said you simply are the best!

You are so inspirational and I bet you are a wonderful person. Yep. I don't have to meet you. It just shines through. :)

Matthew Smith said...

Wow! I hadn't seen that craziness on the treadmill. You're amazing! Way to go!

Sara said...

Freaking. Freaking. Freaking. Amazing. I didn't know all of your story - other than that you are completely awesome anyway and now that I do, I think that even more! AMAZING!

I have tears streaming down my face. Thank you for sharing.

I am taking your shirt to Disney with me!

Much love and happiness to you and yours in 2012!!
