When I signed up for the full marathon in July, I was only thinking of the distance to be covered. It was only in the week leading up to the race that I realised that most of the race would be run under the sun, which even in January can be quite merciless. Every rational part of me was telling me to back out, but I refused to listen. Which is why, today, I can proudly say I am a marathoner.
One quote sums it up perfectly - "The miracle is not that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
And isn't that what my New Year Resolution Word, Do, is all about?
