you amaze me.

i LOVE your medal display.
that is very very cool.

i can't believe you can run that far....it is crazy.
crazy good.


You're amazing and inspiring!!


You´re my hero, Michelle! I´m glad you didn´t push to the unhealthy. And m glad you need chocolate for Arting :-)
Oh, and if you get tired of the medals, you can deMeng them into something!!!


That is so great!!! I love seeing pictures and hearing marathon stories. My dad just qualified to run Boston next year - and I am running my first marathon this October. Still in training and 26 miles seems so far but I am determined to finish.
I don't have a time I am trying for I just want to take it all in and experience it.
Thanks for sharing!


awesome, Michelle!!
