If you have read any of my blogs you would know that I have one of the most supportive husbands on the planet. Not only does he understand my need to train for hours at end each week but he allows me room to explore and dream of new adventure in this running madness that I love and hate at times. He is always willing to do whatever it takes to help me reach my goals and come race day he is out on the course racing from aid station to aid station just to cheer me on to the finish.
A few days before the Holiday Lakes Trail race he gave me an unexpected gift. Out of the blue and for reasons only to remind me why I do what I do….
A book… not just any book… a book about me… my thoughts… my dreams… his love and support… my families love and support… and even some of the comments from you bloggers. He searched through past post and comments from you guys to remind me that I am growing and I am getting stronger. It brought focus back to the importance of what all of this means in my life. With each step and journey I have been on I have become a stronger woman and I know that I am loved and supported by so many… including those of you I have never met.
So to my dear husband…. You touched my heart in the deepest place with this gift of true love. The most thoughtful gift I have ever received! I am sure you knew by all of my tears as I turned the pages.
May we all realize how blessed and lucky we are to have each other in our lives!
