I found the courage to seek out my dream. I had faith that I could do 101 marathons. I fell many times but I got up. I had hurdles to climb over but I got over. To get to the finish line I had to try lots of different paths. I quit trying to pull people on my journey who didn't want to travel with me. I had hope for tomorrow. I visualized the finish line. I never stopped believing in myself. I stayed focus. I was determined. I didn't take my journey too seriously. I had fun. My journey was an adventure. I thanked God that I made it home safely after each marathon. I took a leap of faith and jumped into the stream of life with hope that I would land safely. I had a driver named Jesus. I didn't let doubt take control. I didn't wait for that perfect time to follow my dream. Today was the perfect time. What I learned about myself on this journey? I can do anything if I believe I can! I went boldly in the direction of my dream and ended up breaking two Guinness World Records, "Most Marathons Run in a Calendar Year by a Woman". 106 marathons in 2010!!!
I tied the Guinness Word Record with the legendary Mr. Larry Macon! What a huge honor.
Mama Jean from Maryland is an unbelievable 70 years young!!! Jean is a 50 state finisher. She has run a marathon in all 50 states. Jean ran all seven days at the Savage Seven Marathon. Congrats Jean! You are my shero!!!
