“The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.”
- John Bingham
I kept telling myself this today during the run since all the odds were against me on this one. After a very hard training season, I couldn’t get to sleep last night because I suddenly felt super sick. I even had Ben get me sore throat spray and Dayquil!
So, my race started like this:
And ended this this:
It was brutal, but I finished. I didn’t PR (and actually added a lot of time) for 4:27:something unofficial (my first mary was 4:15:39). But considering I was considering canceling the race last week and ditching out at mile 19 – I am happy I finished.
Details about my race recap, the expo, and bowl movements during the race coming later
