This says it all, right?

I find it hard to find the words sometimes. Those who know me would laugh. I am never at a loss for words. But sometimes my emotions overwhelm me when my dreams come true. Like writing and directing and touring my play. And writing for newspapers and magazines. And having my photos on published calendars. I could go on. Today was one of those days. I am still in shock that I completed 10 miles. 10 Miles.

I had started out this particular journey just trailing along the shore with the dog. Then extending my range. Slowly but surely. Varying it. Doing some hill work.

All culminating in today.

Two of my friends showed up in the final mile and hand-maidened me in to the Finish Line. That meant the world to me. And then we all cried. And cried. Sometimes tears without words are enough.

Thanks for all the good wishes and virtual support out there on the interwebz. And to those of you who are also my FB friends.



  1. Congratulations again, Mary. I am very proud of you, but I knew you could do it. That does not mean I think it was a small feat. On the contrary.

  2. I am so happy for you.
    Proud of you.
    Similar I am
    sensitive and at times my
    emotions overwhelm me...

  9. Wow, wow, wow! You are a true inspiration!

  10. There is a sanctity to such a feeling that is almost defiled by words.

    Namaste is a word that best captures my feelings about your accomplishment.


  11. Thank you all. Yes, Orla, words can't convey the deep feelings of the spirit.

  12. Congratulations. Your persistence is admirable!
