"Spirit of the Marathon" was amazing! Four of us went t see it and I was completely choked up throughout. It was such a wonderful documentary on the trials of training and pushing through. Brought back so many memories for me, and reminded me of all the nuances of training. The roar of the crowds at the race, the signs, and the finish. The finish. I bawled because I remember bawling my eyes out when I crossed the line.

It was also nice to be able to see it with Grace, especially since we trained together so we knew. It's so true like someone said in the movie, you start off with one and you think that's it, but then you start thinking, what if I trained harder, what if... And then you begin to think about other ones. So I need to rebuild a base since it's been a while, but come March after my show Grace and I will try to get back into it!
