I am so happy to be a finisher! Finishing half marathons and full marathons gives me one of the biggest highs I’ve ever experienced. 
Today I finished the Chicago marathon and I felt emotional before the race and shed some tears of happy emotion at the end. This wasn’t my best race but I don’t give up on challenges. I know the feeling you get when you’re at an early mile and the later mile feels far away and I know how it feels when you can shut those feeling out and enjoy the people spectating, running and the scenery around you. This inspires me and I’m happy to be a part of the runners community and a finisher! Thank you to all the people that came to the race to cheer, tracked, allowed me to push them, pushed me and all the finishers who continue to inspire me!  Now looking forward to the next…
Keep moving!
