Sincere thanks

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

My card of encouragement sent by Lynny all the way from Germany! It really reads, "Happy Birthday to our little princess," but Lynn said we can pretend it says, "Run your heart out, Princess!"

It's hard to believe that in five days, this journey will be over. Well, this one will be over... but the training for Indy will start shortly afterward! But, still, it's been an interesting four months, full of ups and downs. I'll spare you other trite phrases (for now) but it's been a journey... a journey I could NOT have gone this far in without all of you.  

So, I need to extend a sincere thanks... a thanks to all of you. I have long believed that I've been blessed with the best family and friends in the world, but I'm constantly reminded when doing things like this. 

Whether you've extended a kind and encouraging word, sent me an email, sent a card, commiserated about my pains, offered me running gear, given me advice, listened to me complain, or just sent good vibes my way, I am grateful for every last comment, email, kind word, and mental thought. I literally could not, could NOT, have done this without the people in my life, whether close to me or not. To my family, friends, Jazzercise family, coworkers, or strangers turned friends (Hi Sherry!), you have been an integral part of this process. I am grateful for you. And running for you is more motivating than running for me. So, thank you! :) 


  1. Thank you A, for inspiring us to follow our dreams too! I'm sure you have inspired more than one person to lace up those running shoes even if just for a walk! Without you, my clean eating blog would never have happened. You are an inspiration to your high school students, your jazz students, friends and family!!! You are reaching and inspiring people you may not even know. We love you and hope you find the internet after the race BEFORE you get home so we can hear all about it!! xoxo j

  2. Love you, J! And I'll be sure to post on Facebook while I'm gone... and a loooong blog when I get home! See you in the morning!

  3. I was so worried it wouldn't get there in time, but am glad it did :) So proud of you!

  4. OK...so this is where I cry! I worked with Holly this afternoon (from your Jazzercise that got me to this blog). I said "your friend is leaving tomorrow for her big race". She got a big grin & we talked about your journey. I told her I can't wait to hear from you after the race!!! This is an amazing time in your life so try to remember to enjoy it as you run.

    Janer - clean eating blog??? Hmmm...I'll see if I can try to find that.

    ***RUN, ANGELA, RUN*** Hoots & hollars, hugs, cameras flashing, bling, bling bling...wooohooo!!!

  5. I mean it, though! You've been such a great help to me -- I couldn't have come this far without your encouragement! :)

    Here's Janet's clean eating blog! http://justj-onedayatatime.blogspot.com/ She made me those almond joy coconut treats today -- SO yummy!

    I'm hoping to post tomorrow before I go... and then I'll be on Facebook until I'm home! Eeeeee! Here we go!!!!
