5k Tommorow..."Because I Can!"

Tomorrow is race day for me. I have numerous reasons why I am doing this even though my training has been less than stellar; they are:
  • Because I can! I'm not saying this to sound self-absorbed but, I can run and there are so many other people that cannot even walk.
  • For our donor and donor family. It's another way for me to say "thank you" even though I do not know who they are.
  • To prove to myself that I can do anything I set my mind to.
To keep me going I will be thinking of:
  • All the CFers that are struggling to breathe.
  • Patience for all the CFers and their families waiting for THE CALL that will change their lives.
  • Jim, who has taught me so much about how precious life is and how to appreciate what you've got and how much I want him to feel better.
  • My friend (who was going to do this run with me) and her family. Her mother had and intestinal transplant several months ago and is going through a very tough time.
"Tomorrow I will beat my record time!"**

**I have never raced a day in my life!
