It is long past time that I should pay homage to my coach, running inspiration and bestie, KG.
One of the main reasons I got back into running after a failed previous attempt was because of her great example. She set her mind on completing the Country Music Half Marathon for the first time in 2008, and she has never looked back.
For the past few years, she has also been running for Team in Training, raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She's pretty much a hero.
AND besides running, we do lots of other fun things together. Many of which involve yummy food. Which in turn, necessitates more running.
And sometimes we do awesome things like getting up early to attend grocery store Grand Openings. Where we are sometimes accosted by giant bottles of dancing chocolate milk.
Sadly, our KG has had a little bit of a medical situation recently, which necessitates her sitting out of tomorrow's 5K. Rather than have her registration fee go to waste, I will be stepping in for her. So if you see me run by, be sure to shout, "Go, KG!"
