Well, the countdown has begun to my very first ever marathon. This Saturday I will be running in the St. George marathon. I can't believe the day is almost here. I am trying not to think about it too much because the thought of it makes me want to poop my pants. ( A very real possiblity as all you runners out there know.) Anyway, I am asking for the help of all of you. For me, running is a very mental thing, (Yes, I am kind of mental) and I was trying to think of a way that would help me get through those 26.2 miles...since I guess taking speed is illegal. So, I was talking to someone in my ward and she was telling me that when her sister ran a marathon she called up all her family members and asked them what "mile" they wanted. She then wrote all of her family members and what mile they were on her arms and whenever she ran that mile she thought of that person. Well, as much as I liked the idea, I decided to kick it up a notch (because I'm just like that.) So here's what I came up with...I want everyone to give me a song to run to. It doesn't matter what it is, who sings it, whatever. I will then put that song into my play list and viola! whenever that song comes on I will think of YOU! So make em good, make em creative, make em yours.I am excited to see what you will tell me. There are not limits, heck if I am running to High School Musical (thanks Zach and Kylie) then I can run to anything. I love you all. See you at the finish line!
