Race Me

15 comments

One of my very best friends, Anastasia, told me I should try running a half marathon about three years ago. I snorted and punched her and told her it would never happen. I told her I wouldn’t make it.

Carry me to the finish line, ya’ll!

And hey, look at me. I’ve completed a marathon and 8 half marathons. I’m borderline psychotic.
