After visiting the Chevron Houston Marathon EXPO today, we are completely PUMPED UP and ready for tomorrow morning. What an amazing feeling, being around all of those Olympic Athletes! My only regret is not finding a love for running earlier in my life! Wow. Those are incredible athletes, and as I watched one woman cross the finish line today, she grabbed her kids and husband and started to cry...oh my gosh, my tears were flowing! I think I had goosebumps the ENTIRE time we watched. Amazing. It was certainly something to witness up close and personal. Very cool. And it all happened in our hometown area...awesome!

For pushing themselves each and every day.
For balancing family AND fitness and making being healthy a priority in their lives.
It was an AWESOME feeling because around so many tremendous athletes and feeling their enthusiasm. I have a feeling that tomorrow will be my FIRST of MANY half marathons and future races! What a feeling.
