The <a href="http://EmpowHER.com">EmpowHER</a> crew, who is sponsoring my BlogHer experience, has been so encouraging and cheered me on as I ran. It was a beautiful course along the San Diego harbor and very normal without a communal start. It was cool (under 70 degrees) and so I decided I would try my best to run the whole thing. And I did. I'm pretty hard on myself usually but this time I'm proud.
