Celebrating the Ordinary
Check out her Celebrating the Ordinary posts.
Here is my photo contribution. These are my feet. They are not pretty feet, but they do a great job. They are four weeks away from carrying me to the starting line of marathon #10. Notice the band-aid on one toe? That's from a blister I got from the shoes I wore to my nephew's wedding this weekend.
My feet are not perfect, but they are mine. Just like my mastectomy scars. They are part of who I am and they define me. They define me as someone who feels deeply blessed to be alive and running marathons.
Today I celebrate my ordinary feet. I also recall my running mantra at the height of all things cancer. I directed this mantra to any cancer cells in my body: "I have run hundreds and thousands of miles, millions of steps, I can outrun you little S.O.B.'s!"
