My Spanish editor, Denise, recently asked me which felt better: the thrill of getting We Are Girls Who Love to Run to the printer or crossing the finish line when I completed The Sun Trust Richmond Marathon in 2003?
Those who know me, know that I am rarely speechless, but Denise's question did leave me surrounded by nothing but the gentle whir of my computer. Really! It took me a few minutes to consider the feelings associated with each accomplishment before my fingers could begin tapping out my response. Here's what I shared with her:
"I did do a marathon, and as rewarding as that was, publishing We Are Girls Who Love to Run is even more rewarding as I get to share it with the world. Time wise, this was even more intensive, but like with training, I had people by my side. :)"
At this point in my life, I don't think I'll tackle another marathon, but I'm pretty certain that I'll bring another title (or two . . . or three) to life!
