I am just re-posting what one of my favorite people wrote about today’s run. She had hoped to run 22 but had some stomach issues so it just wasn’t working for her today. Here’s what she wrote. I couldn’t agree more, and it’s why I do what I do!
“I went to the reservoir this morning with full intentions of running long. I am a firm believer that “things happen for a reason.” Well, as it turned out, and I can’t even blame it on things beyond my control, because I really could have avoided my issues this morning…..ANYWAY…..I had to walk back (quickly) and call it quits soon after starting my second loop, so I was there with Moira when all of you ladies came in from your runs.
My inability to complete my run was not unfortunate, as it afforded me the opportunity to witness the milestones for many of you running today, and I am thrilled. There is a lot to be said about strength in numbers, and you all proved it today. Each and every single one of you ROCK!!! and a very special shout out to Missy Serbonich! What drive and determination you have Missy, and I will be your Number Two Cheerleader at the finish, because no one can replace Moira Easton Horan as their Number One Cheerleader and Coach! Great job today ladies!!”
Couldn’t have said it better myself, Susan! The end of another perfect day.

AND…you were not only Missy’s Number One Cheerleader, you were everyone’s cheerleader, personal support person giving encouragement as well as a smiling face when we needed one, and a stern coach when we didn’t think we needed one! Many women achieved their goal that day – whether it be getting them to the starting line for their first half, their first full, or a pr on the half.
Thanks, Moira, for always knowing what we need when we don’t! Can’t wait to repay you in August and be YOUR cheerleaders, ALL OF US!
Thanks for this bllog post
