My NYC Marathon

You continued going through your pain and stopped to help that woman along. That speaks volumes and teaches me to be less selfish in future races. I have a hard time slowing for anyone to achieve my own goals but sometimes forgetting to stop and inspire others.

Thank you for doing, helping and finishing! – Teresa ( Hellgate Runner / Friend / One Badass MammaJamma, and a girl that inspires me )

I hopped on the 7:45am Ferry with my fellow team mates. Soon after I received a phone call that the rest of the crew was on the ship as well.. I was elated as I need to see my AMY ( The Awesome Mom ). I call her mine because she gets me…. she gets this whole thing… and infact we are just too much alike not to be attached at the hip! She also had Enida ( love her ), Kenny ( my homie that owes me some henni) and the United Nations, I mean Alexie LOL. Once that Ferry docked and we stepped outside the winds had picked up even more.. This was going to be one interesting run. They called for 40 – 60 mph’s that day. They also said that it would calm down by sunset. WRONG.  but we would manage.
