The first blog is always the hardest to write. I realized, just today in fact, that there may be others out there who share my view from the back of the race pack. Instead of beating myself up over not being "fast", I'm going to embrace it. Hey, I'm 30-something now, a mother, a part- part time employee. I'm happy to be able to get out and run, getting each foot off the ground, and still be able to walk the next day (some days more than others).
So here's to us "back packers". Let's enjoy the view, soak in the atmosphere. They always save the best for last, right?
