You have made me cry twice now! I feel like we are in a relationship! Next I will be wearing your sweatshirts and taking over your drawer in the bathroom!

You are soooo sweet! Thank you so much. I swear I could feel your support on the course and it got me through. It was a tough race (due in LARGE part to my stupidity) but I survived!

I feel like a marathoner now. Not a one shot wonder. Thank you for inspiring and encouraging me on this journey. I truly value your friendship!
