I always say my friend Katie convinced me to run the marathon. That's mostly true, but not 100%. I was out running when I was about four or five months pregnant, and as motivation, thinking about running the marathon. I thought it would be so, so cool to bring my daughter (and at that point, I was sure she was a girl) down to the marathon to watch her mommy run.
I want her to know that when you work hard, you can do things you never thought you were capable of doing. I want her to know that, just when you think you're done, you can dig deep instead of giving up. Most of all, I want her to know that hard and sometimes unpleasant things are really, really worth doing.
