I decided I wanted to try. If I failed, fine. But I wanted to know that I gave it my best shot. I lined up not knowing if I'd be able to run even 1 mile. But they ticked off, one by one, and I kept running all the way through the finish line.
And within a minute of last year's time!!!
I am thrilled. And so, so happy I at least gave it a shot.
Race report coming soon.
