A few weeks ago my friend Jacque sent me a package in the mail. For some reason, I thought it had to do with our sibling’s upcoming wedding (her brother and my sister are getting married in June), so I set it aside and went on my run. It was only a 6 miler, but it was of those types of runs where you come home, collapse, and vow to just “forget the whole damn training AND the race”. I plopped down in my chair to ice my foot and I opened my mail. Inside the package from Jacque was a beautiful necklace with my Ft Collins Marathon race date and a note that read: “before the race let this necklace acts as motivation, after the race this necklace will become total bragging rights of your huge accomplishment”! Wow, this was just what I needed to re-start that little spark of motivation within.
Jacque has just started a business called “The Silver Maple” and makes all kinds of jewelry and specializes in running and motivational jewelry. I wanted to share her website with you because in a couple of weeks, I will be doing a giveaway of one of these running necklaces. Go check it out!

Taper has been good to me so far. No long run this weekend, just a "short" 12 miler on my schedule! Have a great weekend everyone and don't for get to go check out the Silver Maple
