It’s easy to get wrapped up in everything marathon whenever you’re training to run one. Taking time to carefully choose what you eat for the proper fuel & making sure to ice and get plenty of rest so your body can carry on.
But what about the every day marathoners? The people who literally run a marathon in a day just doing what they do?
I am infinitely proud of my older sister. She is an everyday marathoner. After helping her take care of my 2 nephews this past holiday, (one is 2 & the other is 9 months) I realized just how hard she works.
She somehow manages to work full time as a social worker, run a Mary-Kay business, and take care of her two boys. And of course she has help from her husband and our parents but still, I am amazed by her! Sometimes she has time to eat, and she rarely has time to rest but she gets up and does work every day.
I am proud of my myself for running a marathon. But really, it doesn’t even compare to what my sister accomplishes in a single day.
