Great job dong it for you. I'm sorry to hear that there was no one of your inner circle to congratulate you at the finish. But I do believe that the spark family you have here, that knew you were off running your heart out, were there in spirit both with you on the course and cheering you on at the finish.
Again Great job completing your firs half. Whats the next goal? 3380 days ago
I loved, loved, loved watching your video blog!! To those who weren't able to view it-- I have a slower connection so it took a few mins to load-- it was a blank white page until loaded. Anyways, APRILBLESS you go girl!!! We both did our first half marathons! You kicked ass by running!! So proud of you! So...what's next? Oh and I know what you mean about doing it alone--what's important is that you DID it!! Next time, maybe a few FL SP will come out to support-- I'm in Cali otherwise you could definitely count on me! 3387 days ago
That is so cool! I can't believe you took all those pics along the way! Great presentation, and yes, thank goodness for Brightroom, because you were absolutely GLOWING at the finish line! 3387 days ago
Aww girl! First of all love that you have my boy Pitt on the background, that was just so MIAMI of you! haha! Secondly, girl I'm so proud of you...you kicked butt. That must be an amazing feeling, I'm hoping to do run a 5k first, it will be first time "running" one...let's see how that goes.
Lastly, I must say that I got a little chocked up at the end when you stated about having no one there at the finish line. I know how that feels, and because of that I tip my hat to you because you still went through with it and did it for you. A lot of people wait around to do stuff until someone comes along with them, but you did it on your own. You rock! Keep it up chica! 3387 days ago
Now that was worth waiting for...excellent job and once again "congratulations" on finishing that race! Be sure to embed that turtle in some sort of trophy case---it is the first of many more to come!
I feel so motivated to start/finish next month's 5k now...you are a tremendous inspiration! 3390 days ago
I am so motivated by you! You got on Spark and kicked the door in. You have a strong mind because you named all the reasons why someone wouldn't even think about a half-marathon let alone train for it and actually finish it. Big ups to you, girlie. You worked hard and it paid off. 3391 days ago
Girl, I am so proud of you. I know we are new friends but i sat there with tears of joy for you. You would have thought i ran with you. You keep on sparking. You are an inspiration to us all... 3391 days ago
Thank you spark family so much! So many people had such a hand in being my support system. You guys are beautiful! BTW - The video music is "Bob Marley - Why Should I" (motto on my home page...) and "Pitbull Ft. Machel Montano - It's All Right". 3391 days ago
You ROCK! Congratulations! I have my very first 20K coming up in June and I'm seriously thinking about doing a half marathon in Oct. I love reading inspirational stories like yours! 3391 days ago
Outstanding!!! Of course, your strongest muscle is your brain and it gave you the heart to do a great job!! I am so proud of you and you did this for the most important person in your life - YOU! You look great coming across that finish line and I know it had to feel great.
What I great presentaion! I am so completely impressed! And the fact that you did it with no one there to cheer you on is the most impressive of all. What an example you have set for others!
I can't thank my spark family enough. So many people had such a hand in being my support system. You guys are beautiful! BTW - The video music is - First: Bob Marley - Why Should I... (motto on my home page...) *Second: Pitbull Ft. (my man) Machel Montano - It's All Right. 3391 days ago
