Looking Back On This Day

Last year this time I just came back from doing the Princess half. I was freaking out cause I signed up for my first full marathon.

I am healthier now than I was 5 years ago. I have advanced in my job as far as I can go without heading back to school. Not sure if I want to do that.

I have helped my kids grow, even if they choose to the wrong things to do. I have made friends from all this Disney running, lasting friendships. I never thought would be possible.

I have learned alot about myself in the few years. Doing things I thought I couldn't do, well I was told I could NEVER do. Man did that spark light a flame. It turned into a raging fire and now I am going to be doing an Ironman. Who knew!! lol

Today starts a new year from me. The last year of this decade for me. I am going to make it the best one yet. End it all with the hope of going to Kona in 2011. So this will be the year to go down in my life history, and then next year to start a new one. Who knows what will be next year this time. Maybe I will be waiting nervously for the lottery to Kona to be announce in April 2011. Maybe in May I will in some weird way make it in roll down and go to Clearwater, Fl. Shoot just cross that finish line and hear Rae you are an Iron man!!!! I may fall down and start crying who knows, I will find out soon enough.

I look back and I see a boring dull person who wished they could do all those things. Fast forward, here I am doing all those things. Why?? Because I want to live life as if tomorrow isn't coming. And look back and smile and say yes that was me. Maybe one day, I will make to DL. I am working on that one hard, even if I have to go alone,but yet I won't be alone.
Who knows...

The story of life is the greatest thing! Can only live it one day at a time. Each day is a new chapter.
I won't know how things will go till it happens, and I can't wait for the story to unfold, and to be apart of it.

Happy Birthday to me!! I am going to make this a year to remember in my life history!

Happy Birthday
