Inspiring Me to Work Hard – London Marathon 2015

It’s never easy to wake up at 4:30am during the cold days of a Maine winter to do the prescribed training workout to get marathon ready. It’s dark, no one else is up, and you have to wonder why you’re doing what you’re doing. And then your community gets behind you and backs you and gives you that extra motivation you need to get out there and get it done. This week I’ve been really blessed to have the support of the Saco Veterinary Clinic and TD Bank generously sponsoring me, getting me much closer to my fundraising goal for Worldwide Cancer Research (https://www.justgiving.com/angela-coulombe). I also had an anonymous giver who rounded out my fundraising with another substantial contribution, was it coincidence they donated after my strong performance at the Jimmy the Greek Frozen 4 Miler (took first place for my age group and ran in 28:29 or 7:08 pace)? I guess I’ll never know, but one thing is for certain, when you have the support of local businesses behind you, and you have your family and friends believing in you and supporting you, it becomes a whole lot easier to get up at 4:30am to get it done!
