35 on 35 on 35

35 miles on my 35th birthday on highway 35.

The idea popped in my head sometime in the last year or so. Why not?  Not that I consider myself ‘old’, but I am on the tail end of my ‘prime’. Running 35 miles on my birthday challenged my perception of myself. I needed to prove to myself that I could do it. Long distance running makes me feel alive, often uncomfortable, not always smart, usually painful…but definitely alive.

A huge thank you to all the support and messages of encouragement I received throughout the day!  I have some pretty awesome friends and family. I remember in science class when we were learning about energy and how it can’t be created or destroyed but only transferred. In this case, I received a lot of great energy from friends and family. Hopefully by taking on some scary challenges (at least in my eyes) and by sharing them, I hope I can inspire others and pass on some wholesome, positive energy.
