Summarizing my experience of the Boston Marathon simply can't be accomplished in a mere few paragraphs...So I won't attempt to do so. And the day was about the racers and not about me, the spectator, so I won't pretend it was. Yet there is still much to be said about experiencing the Boston Marathon, even from the sidelines, and in witnessing many people who inspire me accomplish their goals! Marathons are very much so a story of victory, struggle, overcoming and perseverance, etc. This year's marathon included extra elements of togetherness, unity, strength and the fierce desire to "take back the finish line" that was compromised through violence in 2013, making the day and weekend all the more special.
I'm feeling guilty right about now, because my sister-in-law has been asking for this recipe for weeks and I'm a bit behind in sharing it. Yesterday, however, we had a potluck to celebrate with my boss who is making a big move to Florida this weekend...major sad face on that one :( Anyways, I knew that this would be the perfect dish to bring and lucky for you all, this time I actually wrote down the recipe as I was pulling it together.

Another year has flown by, which means it's time to sit back and reflect on the past season. It has been a season of challenge in many regards, and most definitely not the season I had hoped or planned for. Thinking back to my coaching meeting in January, coach Jim and I had discussed taking things to the next level and I set some pretty high goals for myself. That remained the plan through June, until I through a complete 180 by dropping Chattanooga and deciding to focus on my health. I can vividly remember that day, sitting next to the pool after a short workout when coach asked if Chattanooga was still in the cards. I don't remember whether or not I actually responded, but I do remember the emptiness and defeat I felt in that moment knowing in my heart that the answer was no. I consider myself a "fighter"... being Italian makes me stubborn to the core and I am very loyal to the commitments that I make. However, in that moment God was calling me to let go of my own personal plans and trust in Him instead. As humbling and difficult as it was to walk away from Ironman training this past season, I'm incredibly glad that I did.Hearty Miso Soup
