nope. not even close.
“most people run a race to see who is the fastest. i run a race to see who has the most guts…” – steve prefontaine
the marathon is just ten days away.
ten. days. away.
while i am confident i will not be among the fastest pounding the pavement of the jersey shore on race day, i am more than sure i will be one of the gutsiest.
i started training for this marathon just four weeks after my baby girl was born. i can promise you it has not been talent, ability, or athleticism which has enabled me to run the hundreds of miles required to properly prepare for this race. nope. not even close.
i will finish this marathon only because i am the single most stubborn person i know.
willpower has pushed me to run – over and over and over again.
sheer refusal to give up will carry me across cross the finish line.
