Jennifer Dragstedt, a friend from work inspired me to sign up for the Colfax marathon. I’ve told myself forever there was no way I could ever run a marathon. Flat footed, short bow legs, Pineapples for calves, shin splints and top heavy.
But I’ve learned something in the past 5 years of boot camp. You can push your body to do amazing things. That doesn’t mean you’ll do well, relatively speaking, but can you finish, absolutely.
That’s Bill Douglas running next to me. He’s never run more than 10 miles, and he signed up 4 days before the event. Crazy. Yea, love it.
