Boston Marathon Qualifier

Remember that one time when I qualified for the Boston Marathon?  Although I haven't forgotten it, sometimes I can't believe that I actually did it.  I think I feel this way because I missed getting into the race by a mere 21 seconds before the race filled up.  I have moved past that disappointment and now I am just satisfied with achieving my goal.

Something really cool happened to me today that reminded me of what I am-A Boston Marathon Qualifier.  What happened, you ask?  My best friend gave me a surprise:

Aren't we so cute, all matchy matchy and everything. :)

Hope my in-laws don't mind when I wear this to the fancy schmancy wedding we're going to this weekend.  After all, they did say they wanted us in our best dress, and this is BY FAR the best thing I own.

Kalierae- I love you to the moon and back.  (And not just because you gave me this jacket... although it doesn't hurt :)).

Ah ha ha! Thank you for "forgetting" to mention that I am not a BQ'er. But SOMEDAY maybe. My game plan is just to never slow down and so when I'm 75 and still running 9:00 miles, I will BQ!

I AM SO GLAD THAT JACKET FIT. I was starting to get really stressed about it. Today was the best. I think we should do it more often. Our kids were SOOO good, yes?

I love you more than I can say. Thank you for being my friend. You have given me so much.

The. Jackets. RULE!!! I don't think there's anything wrong with sleeping with / showering with / never taking off the jacket.

(And thanks for the kind words. I really appreciate your support.)
