Thankful Thursday: My Running Partners

I have been blessed to have so many friends supporting me as I run my first marathon in just 3 short days *gulp*!  I'm still missing a few miles - so let me know if you'd like to run with me on Sunday!  My thought is to write everyone's names/miles either on my arm (but my arms are pretty short and that's A LOT of names) or on a few rubber sport bracelets.  In any case, I know all of you will help me get across that finish line on Sunday.  Check out the course map and see where you'll be running with me!

As you can see, there are a few miles left unclaimed.  Seriously, writing them all out like this - wow, that's a lot of miles!  Feel free to claim an open mile by leaving me a comment of which one you'd like!

I am so very thankful for everyone who has supported me, encouraged me, yelled at me to get my runs in when I didn't want to go, told me to listen to my body when I was sick, etc, etc.  I really wouldn't be doing this without all of you.  MWAH!
