It’s been a long ride. In such a short period of time I have ran 4 full marathons in 4+ months. With each of these marathons, I have learned many lessons. These are the lessons I have learned.
1. Toronto Marathon (September) = Joy
Here, I learned how much joy you get by completing a marathon. When I crossed that finish line, you cannot imagine how great I was feeling. I was just so happy with myself.
( 3 hrs 57 mins)
2. New York Marathon (November) = Fun
In New York, I realized how fun running marathons could be. I enjoyed the entire trip, and had no regrets coming there.
(4 hrs 27 mins)
3. Huntsville Rocket City Marathon (December) = Hard Work
In this marathon, I pushed myself like I had never pushed myself before. Every personal record I had ever held was broken in one single race. At the end, when I was tired, I was still glad, because I had done something I never knew I could do.
(3 hrs 43 mins)
4. Mobile Marathon (January) = Courage
A little before this marathon, I was worried. It had been only a month since the Huntsville marathon, my most intense one. My legs were still hurting from it, and I didn’t know whether I was healthy enough to run another marathon. But I took on the challenge anyways, and not only did I complete it, I had fun.
(4 hrs 33 mins)
So now that I have said this, there is only one more question remaining: What will my lessons be for my final 2 marathons – (The Mercedes Marathon and The ING Georgia Marathon)?
