Angela ran in--and finished--a half-marathon on Sunday in Virginia Beach.  13.1 miles.

She hasn't ever been a big runner, logging tons of miles each week, but she set a goal to do this, and she trained hard and she trained regularly.

Her knee was a little balky as the race approached, but she pushed through it.  Big goals like this are never without complications, and the difference between people who accomplish big things vs. those who don't is the willingness to persevere when faced with obstacles.

Big goals always have obstacles.  There is always some pain involved.  Deal with it.

As you can tell, I'm proud of my baby girl.

Always have been; this is just one more reason.
