#SisterInNike, New Found Friends.

Friendship comes in very different forms. When I was younger I was friends with a really old lady who lived down the street from me. I loved going to her house and hanging out, listening to her old stories, going through all of her vintage clothes. We had an amazing friendship. My parents thought I was crazy. An 8 year old should want to be hanging out outside not wanting to hang with an old lady, but she treated me with respect and taught me a lot about myself. She has since passed on but I'll never forget her.

Today with the world being so virtual having friends who don't live down the street or on the other side of town is becoming more common. I have met three amazing ladies through twitter. Karen, Elizabeth and Narissa will be running the Nike Women's Marathon with me. These girls don't live in the same town as me, two don't even live in the same country, but we are sharing an experience unlike anything I have shared with anyone else.

The four of us have been named Nike Women's 2012 Marathon Ambassadors. It's been great to be able to connect with these three great ladies. Each one brings something different to the table, but each one is encouraging, inspiring and determined. I can learn a lot of from each of them and I am looking forward to getting to know them more over the next few months and hope our friendship continues after the marathon.

  1. You're so sweet. I can't wait to run the Marathon with you and take this journey together. I know we will learn a lot about training, life and friendships.
