I am amazed at what can happen in one year. Not only have I continued to run since that first 5K, I completed 12 races (including a half marathon) in the last year. I also had the opportunity to serve as a volunteer for the NCRC women's beginner running program. The group inspired me to continue last year and I hope that I have provided some of the same inspiration for the participants this year. I am so proud of the women that I met this year and how determined they are. They remind me a lot of how I felt last year. So, ladies - keep up the good work!!!
Here's some pics to show the difference a year makes:
