After repeating the phrase, "Where the heck does she get it?" over and over again for the last two years and two months and one day, I think I have the answer.
I've been fairly determined to break four hours in the marathon.
Today, I ran my fourteenth marathon.
I finally broke four hours, which means that I may be as stubborn as Ellie.
Also, a big public "thank you" to my awesome husband who has dealt with my early morning runs with grace.
Ellie only attends races for the bagels, but since she's a good encourager, we let her hang out.
