You are totally rocking those miles, my dear friend! Your OTHIG must be quite the gal for you to be moving your booty and getting faster each time! I'm so very proud of you and I'll continue to be your cheerleader, as you will continue to be my inspiration! ::hugs::

The thing is, I'm not thinking about speed ot miles, not while I'm doing it. That's too long-term. I'm thining about that next step, and the next step, and the next step. And, on those occasions when I want to say, "Fuck it," and just head fro teh car and drive away, I think about how I'll feel turning that last corner, head back to the car when my half-hour, or my mile, is done, see the pride and happiness in those amazing eyes, feel those arms sliding around me, the soft warmth of her mouth against mine. I think about that, and the extraordinary girl who's waiting in spirit, if not in body, for me to complete that course... I think about the mix of sympathy and disappointment I'd see in those amazing eyes if I turned back early, and I'd crawl on my belly over six miles of broken glass not to see that! And that gets me through to the end of my course.

When you reach your goal, are you going to tell the OTHIG that she was your inspiration? You totally should, because that would be so complimentary to whomever she is, to know the thought of her made you push yourself to the limit and beyond. At least, I assume it would be complimentary to her- not knowing her (or who she is), I suppose I can't really confirm that.

Either way, you are doing great and it's giving me a push I need to get my booty moving too! :o)

I can't ever think in terms of "When I reach my goal." That's too far away, too big and scary. My goal is the next goddamn step. That much, I cen think about.

But the OTHIG knows who she is, and is a daily source of inspiration to me, and I'm grateful every day of my life for her.
