I can’t believe I am actually going to be at the start line of my TENTH marathon this weekend. I still remember being at the start line of my very first marathon like it was yesterday, it’s hard to believe I have actually finished 9!
Each marathon I run I always learn something new, so here are my 9 lessons from the 9 marathons I have run so far…
I learned that I could run 26.2+ miles. And a tough 26.2+ miles!
I learned that marathons were definitely were hard and BQing was going to be harder.
I learned that we all have bad days and on those bad days we learn more about our self determination than any other day.
I learned not running for yourself can be more rewarding than running for yourself.
I learned when your heart isn’t into a race, your body won’t be either.
I learned that when you want something bad enough and work hard enough, it will happen.
I learned that even when things are amazingly beautiful, marathons still hurt.
I learned to never ever overdress for a marathon.
I learned that some marathons are 100% more about the taking in the experience than the number on the clock.
#10 Big Sur Marathon
We will find out the lesson in 2 short days – lets hope it’s a good lesson!
2 days to go!
