Run Strong, Run Long

"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage"- Anais nin

Suzanna gave me a card yesterday that said this quote on the front. She wished for me a smart and successful race. Inside the card was a small silver heart that I will carry with me as a reminder, when times get tough and doubt creeps in, that I am a strong, powerful runner.
Thank you Suz for that beautiful card and your encouragement. Thanks for always believing in me. You are a wonderful running partner, but more importantly, a great friend.
Thank you to all my friends that have emailed or called me wishing me luck and delivering me lots of encouragement and prayers. As Dan Williams said, "Kelly, you have unfinished business that you need to take care of at Wasatch." Yes, Dan, you are right about that. Well, it's off to bed, time to take all my crap off the bed again, suitcases, backpack, unfinished drop bags, lights,etc...... and finish with my packing after work tomorrow. If there is an afterlife, I hope I come back organized. Oh, and Dan, I plan on running strong and long, but not too long!!
