9/18/08 — Working, working, working — now ratcheted up to ten hours a day. Sometimes I don’t know if I’ve got what it takes to keep pushing this hard.
Then I remember last weekend and a rare day off to compete in the Timberline Half Marathon near Mt Hood, Oregon. My daughter, Kelsey (far right in photo below), developed a blister at mile 3. It popped minutes later, and started to bleed. And that was just the beginning. Soon she had four!
But did that stop her? No way. She’s tough, and had the endurance to keep pushing until she crossed the finish line. I’ll do the same . . .
