I have to 2 most memorable running moments. The 1st moment was running my first marathon and coming to the point where the finish line was in sight. As bad as that marathon was, I never felt so relieved and accomplished at the same time! It was a very proud moment for myself!
The 2nd was when I was running through the streets of the Chicago marathon and seeing thousands of people cheering you on. It was such an uplifting moment and I felt like I was on cloud 9!
I initially decided to run a marathon because after I had a couple halves under my bet, I decided it was the next natural progression and I guess I wanted to see if I could actually do accomplish it!
My most memorable Streaker moment was when Jen decided to have dress up in our Halloween Costumes during the month of July and do a track workout. I’m sure we looked ridiculous and needless to say to was extremely hot out. The costume I had on was not summertime friendly either. As bad as that night was, I will probably never forget it!
This is tough one as I’m not sure I have one favorite running story in Greensboro as each one is unique and memorable in its own way but I guess I would have to say it happened as I was training for the 2015 Chicago marathon. Amanda Coble and I did most of our training together so as the marathon was fast approaching and it was time for our 22 miler, we decided we would tackle it on a Friday morning as I had plans for the weekend. Sense it was a workday; we planned to start at a some crazy hour around 5:15 AM. So as Friday came and my alarm went off to get up and meet Amanda, I looked out the window and it was pouring rain! The forecast did not have the raining letting up either. I texted Amanda to see if we should postpone but we decided to meet and run it anyway; it rained and poured the entire time but once we finished, we felt we ready for Chicago and whatever weather it would throw at us!
