You all have to excuse me that I'm a little late posting this, but it has been one of those months. But, we always have to stay positive and I believe that it can only get better now.
As you know I always dedicate my runs to someone in no particular order. My March races are somewhat bittersweet due to several reasons:
1-- These races will be my last ones for awhile due to a small injury I've sustained. I have to take care and heal the injury before I continue with my running goals.
2-- On March 3, 2013, I lost one of my warriors. She was one of my biggest weapons to battle my weight journey, one of my biggest cheerleaders. So needless to say, I am running with a heavy heart, but I'm sure she is cheering me from above. I have gained another Angel.
|Taffy and Me|
Taffy opened the doors to a place that has become my safe haven and my second home. She is the Director/Manager of The Whitehall Health Club.
The Dedication Reads:
She might be pint size, but her heart is the biggest. Her passion, dedication, compassion, and caring are just a few of her virtues. She has the gift of logic, the art of reasoning that makes you realize misunderstandings. She is plain and simple a little ray of sunshine.
My second race will be March 16, 2013, I will be running the NYCRUNS Riverside Park 5K. This race will be dedicated to Maria Jorge.
Maria came into my life a few years ago becoming like a little sister. She cheers me on no matter what. I really appreciate her friendship and most of all the love that she gives to one of the most important person in my life - "My Brother".
|Maria and Me|
Even though we are not related by blood, a bond has been created between us. You are the little sister that I never got to have. I'm grateful for your loyalty and love through good and bad times.
As I said before, I will be taking a sabbatical from running, but God willing I will come back kicking butt. In the meantime, I will continue my workouts and staying strong.
