Check out this Inspiring personal account on the motivation to finish a #marathon

Just read your race report. I was ready to say earlier, wow, what a great time – 4:40 is faster than the one and only marathon I’ve ever run. Then, to read how you did it with all of those problems on top of it, well, that’s just amazing. I really like your idea of dedicating a mile of each race to an individual. It’s a beautiful idea. I know from reading your tweets (I’m “middlepackgirl” on twitter), especially these past few weeks as you’ve been tapering, that you were so excited to run this race, and I’m so sorry that today was the day that your body rebelled against you. You showed real strength of character, and like your friend said, if you had been running faster, you would have missed out on seeing that gentleman with the battle scars. If I ever run a marathon again, I think you’ve helped me to choose which one. Sounds like you have a gem of a husband, too.
