Training for the Lincoln Presidential Half Marathon is almost done. I've got one, ten-minute run.
This entire process has been really exhilarating!
I'm here in between shifts and thinking about how amazing it's going to be tomorrow, running with over 1700 people on the streets of Springfield.
We're all going to run 13.1 miles past all of the President Lincoln sites! Our friends and family will be there to cheer us on! Makes me smile. I'm cheesy.
Anyways ... I did this because I want to make right choices. I also hope to inspire others. I think I may have! At least a couple!
And, I also show up as b-roll in the story about traffic around town tomorrow.
And, trust me, all your encouragement and support is genuinely felt deep down. Thanks, and hopefully I inspired some of you.
Now, let's dominate this 13.1 mile jaunt through Lincoln history in Springfield!
