20 miler

the 20 miler was a test of my endurance and willpower. and the ability to distract my mind from the crazy distance. there was despair, pain, and also zen like acceptance. i did finish though, in 5 hours and 27 mins. so many people at the race was awesome. the run far timing guys did an honor guard for me and the pregnent lady i ended up walking with, at the 25k mark. also, when i was walking by myself towards the waterstop near mile 9, the volunteers watched me and clapped :-) so it made me feel better about being at the end.

I finished second to the last.

I'm so thankful that the next race is only a half marathon.
