I have 1,000,000 thoughts about today and I don’t really even know where to start but I do have one really important thing to say.

Thanks Sissy.

I saw her at mile 20.5 and just hugged her and cried for at least a minute telling her how I couldn’t finish (not because of my injury but for a few things I will tell you about later).

She looked at me and then said, ‘Let’s do this.’

She ran from 20.5-26.2 side by side with me.  In flip flops and jeans.

My new favorite memory ever with her.

I got goosebumps reading your (new) recaps from the marathon.

I’ll be at Boston 2015 too, except I won’t be running it (I’m slow. I don’t like distance). But my husband, me, and his family will be there!!!

MAYBE I WILL GET TO MEET YOU #ImBeingCreepAgain #Sorry
