You see, I have been running marathon since 1999. Saying I have been putting my heart & sole into the race is not an exaggeration. My relationship with running marathons is beyond casual. It is commitment.
The stimulus and response I put my body through to get ready for the big race span 20 weeks (and it has been 3 weeks thus far). This means I bring on the heat in a controlled fashion designed to elicit progress and result. Even on the days when I feel not 100%, I press on.
It is a story of discipline, perseverance, and you guessed it, commitment. No doubt, I encounter challenges along the way. But week by week, I work through them. If the training is done right, race day is when I get to let it fly.
On top of it all, I get to write about this journey – the ups and downs, hope and despair – my marathon story.
Totaled 46 miles. Have a great week.
