Running has not taken over my life but would you really tell me to cut back and watch out after seeing this picture?
This was me flying into the finish at the Eugene Womens Half. I passed about 6 people or so in the final tenth of a mile and I was grinning like I had just won a lifetime supply of gummy bears.
I think this pretty much sums up why I love running and why it will be a part of my life as long as it can be. Will I become a crazy ultramarathoner? I really don't think so - but I'm sure as shit happy where I am right now. This is a candid moment caught on film after 13.1 miles. Pretty darn awesome photo!
