Marathon

Denise

Our Chicago Marathon took place on Sunday.

On Tuesday night, I had a dream I ran, and finished, a marathon. I ran it in four hours, 50 minutes. I also ran it without having run more than three miles on any previous run.

Today, I wonder: Was that really just a dream? Or, is that what we really do in life? Is it possible to accomplish so much without much training?

Think of what you do every day. Think of what you did every day a few years ago. Today, you run a marathon. A few years ago, you ran just three miles. And, my guess is that you went from three miles to 26 miles overnight.

Every day, you run a marathon. Every day, you cross the finish line. Every day, you deserve a moment to soak in what you do and just feel incredibly good about it.

Every day, you live my dream.
