2) I ran Ragnar Relay Washington DC last year (2011) and didn't learn about Holly Mitchell's story until after the race. Holly's husband died the year before (2010) while he was running his first Ragnar leg. Holly's return to the same race where she lost her husband is a remarkable story of strength and determination to complete an emotional race to honor her husband.
4) Last but not least, Kerrie from Mom Vs. Marathon! Kerrie's blog was the first blog I started following a year ago. She inspired me to start blogging then, when I got the running bug. I wasn't blogging regularly last year, but her FB and blog posts about her training, her first Hood to Coast Relay Race experience and her first full marathon experience brought me back to the blogging world and into this wonderful community of blogging runners. If you're not already following Kerrie, you have to! She keeps everything about running real and amusing, even the parts about getting injured. Thank you, Kerrie! She tagged me to do the 11 Random Things, so that will be up sometime tomorrow!
Hope everyone had a great Monday!!!
