I'm not running for glory, or to win. I'm running to show my daughter that she can do anything she wants to do. I could tell her that she's strong and beautiful and capable, but how will she ever believe it unless she can actually witness someone (like me) BEING strong and beautiful and capable. I didn't have anyone like that in my life, and I spent much of my youth thinking that OTHER PEOPLE could run 13.1 miles, or write a book, or climb Mt. Everest, but not me. I was plain. I was boring. I was average. Until one day I decided that I don't want to be plain and average, I want to be remarkable. So, even if it means coming in DEAD LAST, I will finish my 13.1 miles to show my daughter that she can do whatever she decides is worth doing.
