Amazing Response- Thank you SP friends

You sparkers keep making me cry this week. The response to my last blog has been so wonderful, thank you all.
For the record, I started training in September with a group called Tampa Bay Fit, they are a local affiliate of USA Fit (www.usafit.com). I would meet the group on Sundays for a long run each week and then run on my own 2-3 other days on a schedule they gave me. It cost $ 90 to register and they gave me a cool shirt - probably the best $90 I've ever spent. My max distance (and only other non treadmill run) before September was a 5k I did in May 08. It really helped having the training and support.
I really did mean what I said about anyone being able to do the same, you know. If I can carry my 200 lbs 13 miles, you can achieve that goal you have been working on but seems too hard some days...... really and truly. xoxo
ps The race photos were taken by "Marathon Foto" Surprisingly I was able to download the tiny files they post so you can order from them, which I will do. I couldn't believe how quickly they emailed me after the race.....very cool stuff !!
