Carlsbad Marathon 1-22-2012

CARLSBAD MARATHON January 22, 2012

Carlsbad Marathon was my very first half marathon back in 1998.  Who would have thought that fourteen years later I would have power walked 307 full marathons???  Not me.  I finished 5:56:34

I enjoyed walking a few miles with Paula and Sara!

I run/walk because it's so symbolic of life.  You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles.  You might feel that you can't.  But then you find your inner strength, and realize you're capable of so much more than you thought.

  1. Yolanda I am so proud of you! Power walked 307 Marathons? You know I should've walked at least one with you. This year my daughter and I are contemplating walking the Long Beach marathon. Yep! We have the hope and confidence right now, but if we will just keep believing I know it can be done. Thanks to you, training me to walk so early in the mornings in freezing weather up those long hills last year has really given me confidence to do more than I thought I could. We will see you in Long Beach this October!
