So I was advised yesterday by my running coach to take at least 3 weeks off from my running. If you know me this is something that's gonna be extremely disturbing to me... But from my past experiences I actually have learned that I'd rather enter my training fully rested & ready than injured and beat up... My mind tells me as it always has "you can do this" and I will not give up on this!! I will continue to crosstrain and do any assistance work I should and of course pray....

- Hello I am Stephanie M. Freeman and I have created this to let everyone walk with me through my journey I am taking to accomplish my dream of qualifying for the Boston Marathon.Running is such a passion of mine. When I was 14 years old I experienced a life changing event that gave me this passion. I suffered a brain injury from a car accident that left me in a wheelchair & with no hope to ever walk again. For 2 months of my life I prayed for my miracle, and with strength and determination I proved all my doctors & nurses wrong... I walked again!When I run now a days I let this memory drive me harder than ever to be the best person/runner I can be! So therefore I know this goal of mine WILL happen for me and I will make most sure of it!
