My sisters make fun of me… They say that I run so much, that I ran to Canada. It’s kind of true – my second marathon was the Detroit marathon and the route was across the bridge through Canada and back to Detroit. My first marathon was the Savannah marathon, and I remember every step of the 26.2 miles (don’t ever forget the point two).
A marathon is always challenging – the 18-week commitment to training is difficult, but finishing the race is equally as big. I remember getting to mile 22 at the Savannah Marathon and wondering whether or not I could finish the 4.2 miles remaining. At that point, you have to trust your training and tell your body to do what your mind wants. I finished both marathons and love the euphoria of the finish-line.
It’s always wonderful when I look back to see what I have accomplished. To accomplish a dream, you have to commit to the process. Looking back after success is the icing on the cake.
