This is Cathy! (The “Phenom”)
This is her in the last mile of her first full 26.2 mile marathon.
She always had encouraging words for me… not sure if you can read the sweet message that she wrote to me back in 2001-2002… (click to enlarge)
She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself.
I hated this pic…. another wake up call that I needed to make a change!!
The first time we had seen each other since I lost about 25 lbs!!
It’s great to have certain people in come into your life that are a joy to be around.
Last year, we were able to go running together for the first time in quite a while. We’ve lived in separate cities, she had her second baby, and we just haven’t been able to run a race in a while. I went out to her place and we ran a quick 5 miles together. Oh how the times have changed. It was so cool to be able to catch up, enjoy an early morning run, and realize how much I have changed….. both inside and out. Thanks Cathy!!!!!
