And then I ran 15k.
It was one of the best runs I’ve ever had. I found my ‘running legs’ fairly early on, my toes hardly cramped, and my iPod actually worked.
It feels a little like a dream… I still can’t believe I did it. The race gave me great hope for the 1/2 marathon. After the race it was the first time I actually thought, ‘holy eff, I’ll actually be able to run the 1/2.”
The above photo was taken right after I crossed the finish line, I was nervous I may puke so a few seconds after this photo was snapped I was on my back staring at the sky, but had a huge smile on my face.
