Photostory Friday: You Go Girl

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek







When I saw this photo uploaded in my picasa I immediately though of Candy. This woman is an inspiration. I love reading her blog, she puts a lot of herself out there and she runs. She is running the NYC marathon this Sunday. Not only is she running 26.2 miles she is also running for Team for Kids and raised $2500. The reason I thought of her is because when I put on my running shoes and attempt to run I think of her and Kathryn. They are the made up voices in my head that keep me going when I want to stop. Now I don't run very far and I don't run very fast, but Peanut Butter must enjoy some of the time in the stroller since she will throw my shoes at me and as this photo shows, put them on. Hopefully, she'll find something active she'll like to do, and find inspiration from other women like herself that just get out there and do it. If you think of it Sunday morning, think a positive thought for Candy, she's nursing a sore hamstring, to maybe uplift her and help her finish. You go Girl.


If you were hoping to see Miss Peanut Butter in her fabulous costume try HERE.

Marathon runners have a great deal of respect from me, heck runners at all have my respect. I want to run but I have a hard time finding that inner motivation so kudos to you for finding the motivation and getting running.

Susie said...

Cute picture too!
