Many say I'm crazy, but you just don't understand how emotional, thrilling, exciting, painful, and amazing running can be. With every mile you're pushing through the pain and doing something you never thought or imagined you would ever be able to do.
I think of Colt with every run I do. How he fought cancer so hard. How his body was racked with pain, but he continued on. Although, my pain is no comparison, it makes me fight harder. I chose one of his favorite songs as my power song. Not to us - by Chris Tomlin. I used to hold him in the kitchen and he and I would spin and dance as it played. Some of my favorite memories, and our favorite moments. I can often close my eyes at the finish of every run when I hit that power song, and I can see him cheering me on to the finish.
He fought the fight, he finished the race. So can I!
