Today I will celebrate with the world by running 3 miles on Global Running Day. As I run I will think about how far I have come in the past year. Last May, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. This May, I have no evidence of disease, ran 231 miles so far this year, and signed up for a marathon.
Today I am proud of setting a date for completing 32 miles. I will focus on the everyday accomplishments instead of letting fear cloud my mind. Today, I will remember the breathtaking views and let that motivate me to continue training.
Today I will go to treatment and rest. Tomorrow get up and continue to train. To get my mileage in for the week I will have to run in bad weather, the dark, and when I don’t want to. This week I will be consistent and focus on the positives so I can be successful.
