Run of my life
I did it!!! It was amazing! The first 6 miles were awesome! I felt great, the atmosphere was fun, I was having a great time. At mile 8 I started to feel it, my body was in shock I think. My hips started to ache... Mile 10, I had a potty break, I totally felt it then. My body did not want to go any further. I kept on going, I dug deep. The last 2 miles were for sure the hardest. I was ready to stop, my body was telling me to stop, my mind was telling me not to quit. i had my husband there right beside me the whole time, which was such an encouragement. He could have gone on and blew the pants off of me, but he stayed by my side. The last mile, was my mile. It felt like it was 5 miles, lol. Every part of my body hurt, my feet were on fire, my knee was hurting, my ankle was sore, I felt sick. I concentrated on my breathing, on finishing, on my goal. I thought about my experience, my journey, what this race meant to me. I made it, ran the whole way, and really proved something to myself. It was great! So I complete this awesome race, and eat like crap the whole entire weekend... hmmm. There is something wrong there.
