    Caitlin. Wow. I’m sooo proud of you, and I don’t even know you. (slow clap for the power of the Internets right here). I ran my first ever marathon 10.10.10 in Chi town, and hope to run the Vegas marathon on Dec 5th. You’ve absolutely inspired me, and although I’ve been a silent/creeper reader for the last year, I just HAD to comment, on our proud I was of you, because WOW!!! your time is amazeballs. xo
