i'm easy to impress
I had forgotten. Forgotten how long a marathon really is, how long it takes me to run it. How it feels even longer while I am right in the middle of it. How super long the last mile is and how amazing it feels to cross the finish line. I don't know if I will ever qualify for Boston (3:40 is a kind of ways from where I am now) and I will certainly never win one of these. But. I will sign up for another one come fall. Because I really love working towards something that feels almost unattainable and then proving to myself that it is not. Plus, it's totally fun to mention in random conversation that I ran a marathon last weekend. People act pretty impressed and quite frankly, they should be. I am.
P.S. Not commenting on my time because I was disappointed with it. If I just ignore it, it will go away, right?
