I’m alive! I finished! And I cut 9 minutes off my time from last year. I’m glad that I did it, and glad that it’s over. That just about sums it all up.
I will never be one of those people who loves to run, or who is super fast – but I have an able body and legs that work, and therefore, it’s a privilege to participate in something like a half-marathon. A sometimes torturous privilege, but a privilege all the same.
Such a privilege that I will post a grody picture of myself.
