My words exactly. I mean those were exactly the words I used; that is, until I decided to “just do one.” Yes, one and done was the mission here.
January 2018, I completed my 11th.
I am not a good runner. Probably not even average. Slow and steady, kind of like a turtle. But I finish.
More importantly, each and every event and most training runs are transformational. The person who starts the race is NOT the person who finishes.
I often experience deep insights and moments of intense creativity brought on by running long distances. It is not easy but nothing that is life changing is ever easy.
Follow my journey. Maybe it will encourage you to start your own.
