Holy crap I ran a half-marathon!
Monday, January 26, 2009
What!?!? I ran a half-marathon!? That's crazy. I can't believe that I did it. But I have the medal to prove it. In fact, as I accept this medal, I would like to thank those who made this possible. First I would like to thank myself, for dragging my ass out of bed on Saturday mornings to run and run and run. For remembering to focus on how proud I would feel once it was all over in order to keep myself going when I really REALLY didn't want to run anymore. And for signing up for the half-marathon to begin with...what was I thinking? I would like to thank the awesome coaches, especially Coach Diane who really is a very cool person and a wonderfully warm and motivating coach. I know I wasn't the best team mate all the time but I did my best. I would also like to thank the love of my life. You didn't have to sign up with me, but you did. And we did it, baby! We did it together and we crossed that finish line hand in hand. Now as I sit here with this behind me, I can't help but wonder...what's next?
