My wedding band was a size 8 1/2 and it was too small for me when I got married. I ordered it small on purpose because I was embarrassed to get a 10, which was what I truly needed. I only wore it on my wedding day and needed to use soap to get it off. In it's place over the years, I wore a size 10 silver ring. I got it sized down to a 6 1/2. My father gave me my mother's wedding set about a month ago. I was shocked that her rings were also a size 8 1/2. She was not a big woman, but was Polish and my co-worker says she probably had big fingers because she was working with her hands so much (she made a lot of pierogi). I'm very excited to get my rings back and no longer have to fear losing them. My wedding band almost came off a few times while I was washing my hands.

In my last post, I used a quote from a Coldplay song called "Fix You". This appears to be a very popular inspirational song. It was also used in the last inspirational running video I posted. While scrolling through running videos on YouTube, I came across another gem that brought tears to my eyes. This is exactly where I want to be one day (minus the Iron Man). Yesterday, someone asked me why I run. I run so I can continue to motivate myself and encourage others. I run to prove to myself that I can. I run to show others that you can do anything if you really want it. I run to be the best example I can to my son. I run so that one day, I will be able to enjoy life like a "normal" sized person. I run because it makes me feel really good (most of the time). I run for my existence.
