This quote has never meant so much to me than it did today. This morning I ran my first half marathon with my sister, cousin, and a friend. We all have different paces and finished at different times, but I couldn’t have been more proud of us! The fact that we finished simply amazes me. And the fact that 10,000 women all of shapes, sizes and backgrounds finished simply blows me away.
I have to say I got a little teary eyed crossing the finish line; not because I was in pain but because I was overwhelmed with so many feelings: those of joy, accomplishment, strength, victory, relief, and euphoria. No matter what time you finished, you get that feeling – the feeling of “I did it. I finished. All by myself.”
What are some feelings you get at the end of a race? I’ll post a more in-depth recap of the half marathon/weekend in NYC tomorrow!
