The One I Trained My Heart Out For
More than 24 hours past my 18-miler and I’m still gloating. I really didn’t know if I had it in me. In the past 5 years I’ve failed to get past the 16-mile mark during long runs more often than I care to admit.
People assume that because I’m a runner and I’ve been running for the majority of my life that I’ve ran a ton a of marathons. Well, the truth is I’ve ran three; one I didn’t train for, one I ran while injured (I was young & dumb what can I say), and one where I over did it on Gatorade and made 11 port-a-potty stops.
I’m hoping this one I’m training for now can be added on to the end of that list as “the one I trained my heart out for.”
