Wish me luck...

I haven't gone running since Tuesday, so I've got fresh legs. My iPod is charged. I'm wearing my favorite hat, shirt, and running skirt. I'm nervous, but that's just part of being me. If this race is anything like every other race I've ever done, I'll have tears in my eyes as we line up at the starting line. The last-picked little girl in me will be amazed and grateful to be standing among all the athletic people, realizing that I FIT IN!!!

My goal is a sub-2:00 half marathon. Wish me luck...

I can't believe you were the last picked at school, but trust me, as far as people like me are concerned, you "fit in" to anybodies life, because you compliment a persons life not complicate.

Whatever you do in life, you will always be appreciated, and those that didn't see the real you, missed out, and will never know what it's like to know you in any way shape or form.

Whatever the result of this race I know you will have given 100%, and asked no more than you can give, so you should still be very, very proud of yourself, and in a few years you've come a long way, so you don't need to think about being someone from your past, as yo uare no longer that person, you are and will always continue to be a fantastic round peg, with almost any situation being the round hole.

So YES you DO fit in :-) :-).
