“As the race progresses, your physical strength wanes but your confidence builds. Why? Because as the miles click by, even as the lactic acid spreads through your muscles, you move closer to the finish line. And the closer you move to the finish, you become surer you will actually make it.”
Happy Marathon Monday! This is me crossing the finishing line of the Richmond marathon having just qualified for Boston back in November. I can’t wait to be apart of the excitement and madness next year!
I’m here and I’m ready! I’ll be at the starting line in 12 hours. I don’t have the words right now to thank everybody who is cheering me on, whether along the course, at home or at work. You all mean the world to me. I’m honored to run this historic race. Here’s to whatever tomorrow holds!
