Last week I tried to run my full 3.8 mile course three times and three times I failed. I did go a little bit further with each succeeding run. However, I just couldn’t make it the whole way.
Today, I finally succeeded in running the whole route. However, my time was…shall we say, less than inspiring.
Oh, well, I’m not training to be a contestant in the Olympics so I have time to improve.
Addendum: I can’t believe that I forgot this! When I crossed the finish line, I was very weak. In fact, I started to faint. My legs grew weak, my knees started to buckle and I became very lightheaded! There was a woman walking her dog who quickly became very concerned!
“Are you all right.”
I smiled, held my hand up to wave as I tried not to fall down…
and then as I started regaining my strength, I whispered, “I’m just really out of shape!”
I have never experienced that before! Oh well, all for the cause.
