Good afternoon everyone! My mood is slowly improving since Sunday’s decision to not run the MCM… I know in my head I am doing the right thing, but my competitive nature and my heart keep saying, “You can do this!”. But, I am afraid after trying to jog a teensy-tiny amount yesterday, I can’t do it right now.
However, this is allowing me time to prepare and get healthy for the Operation One Voice Special Forces Run from Duluth, GA (northeast of Atlanta) to Tampa, FL. I am very excited. This will be my fourth year participating and I cannot wait to see so many of my old friends and meet new friends. The runs are always fun and tiring, but every year I walk away so humbled by the many amazing men and women in our country, serving and just living here.
This year, I will be able to update my blog in “real-time” due to my iPad (Happy Birthday to me!!!). So, please check during the run and see where we are and what we are doing. I will, of course post more detailed blogs with images and more after the run, but I cannot wait to have “boots on the ground” for the run!
Thanks to all of you who have sent me e-mails or called to wish me well with being sick. Your thoughts and prayers mean so much more than you can know! Thus, I am looking on the positive side, and looking forward to the OOV SOF run starting Nov. 7 – 11.
