|I was not happy coming to the finish.|
My husband was not happy about how cranky I look in his photos so he told me next time I run through a finish area I need to think "and smile damit" and do it too. (For those who don't know that is part of the warm up from the theatre group we met in - go FASS!)

So I may not have had my best feeling run, and I may feel the pain in my legs for the next week, and the memory of the self doubt that I felt on my own out on that cold, lonely, unforgiving road will linger with me longer than I'd like it to, but in the end I didn't give up, I gave it my all, and I achieved what I had dreamed of during all those long hours of training. If you set your mind to something you can achieve it if you're willing to put the work in, and push through the pain.
