I was going to post a shout-out to Twitter, but 140 characters just wouldn’t do this justice. I’m absolutely inspired by a fellow blogger and patriot, and I want to give her kudos.
Michelle Lancaster, known to a lot of you as @SkiGarmisch in the Twittersphere, completed The Color Run today, her first 5K. While that may not see remarkable to some of you, Michelle has been working hard towards this goal and faced some obstacles along the way. One big obstacle was an injury that required bed rest, and while I’m sure it frustrated her to no end to follow doctor’s orders, she knew she had to heal. The injury was a setback, and Michelle was not able to run the 5K as she planned. Walking the course still counts, and she finished the entire race!! And the look of pure happiness on her face in her pictures is a joy to behold.
Michelle, you are an inspiration, and you are my hometown hero. Next year, I plan on being right there with you. Thank you for posting your progress along the way and sharing such a great accomplishment!!
