So this happened this morning at 7 AM. It’s taken me all day because it’s hard to say what this race meant to me. I ran with my backpack on because I didn’t know where to put it down. I ran despite having pain in my legs. I ran despite people passing me. I ran on #W8D3 of #c25k. I kept running, and was even given props for stupidly adding extra weight. Through all the mistakes I made that morning that should have hindered me, I ran.
And I finished. I finished #c25k. I finished 2 miles. And even better, I finished with my best time yet, which is INCREDIBLY unbelievable to me. This morning was so empowering, and I’m glad to have shared it with @megg_roll @lilyrod8 @user_of_time and others. This doesn’t mean anything’s over. I felt an overwhelming wave of support, and I can’t wait for more races in my future.
