Commitment Is Everything.

"Commitment to the body machine.  It was as critical as the commitment to the goal itself."

Life Is Good.

Nothing but good news!  The MRI results showed that I have fluid under my right knee, but this is something I can handle with the aid of physical therapy.  Only five more weeks.  Life is good.

The Waiting Game....

As I sit here and wait for my MRI results to tell me the diagnosis of my knee injury, I can not help but focus on the many countless thoughts that are running through my head.  I ask myself everyday what it is that I want to accomplish in these next months.  It is easy; I want to pass my nursing boards and I want to run the marathon.  I am not giving myself a choice on either of these, since I WILL accomplish both.  It is hard for me to explain how difficult this setback has been.  I have dedicated myself to an incredible training schedule, and it is now the daily, constant focus of my life and I would not want it any other way.  As I sit here and wait, with these endless thoughts running through my head, one thought stands out above the rest.  I am running the Boston Marathon in 37 days, 21 hours, 7 minutes and 17 seconds.  But hey, who is really counting?
