Life Goal: Complete a Marathon
I completed my first marathon in 2008. I joined the Vavi marathon training club with Jessie. I was good about making it to the Tuesdays and Saturday group runs, however I completely slacked when it came to running on my own. I’m impressed that I was even able to increase my mileage like I did with such minimal running. I ran the race with my friend Jeremy from my running club for the first 17-18 miles. After that, we split up because I was feeling like garbage. At about mile 20 I was spent. I was running with my ipod so for every other song I ran/walked. Once I got to mile 23 I just wanted to be done. So I stopped walking and shuffled/ran to the finish line. While I would like to improve my time, it was an awesome feeling to know that I had completed the marathon.
