i’ll be running 26.2 miles November 7th at the age of 44. my glutes hurt, my knees grind when i walk up the steps, my hammies are perpetually sore, it takes me 2 miles to warm up…
i’m not what i was at 39. but, i feel, better prepared mentally. i know what to expect. i know that half the battle is psychological. i know when to slow down and speed up.
went for a short run yesterday evening. it was friggin’ cold. but i did it anyway.
why am i doing it? why is it that i want to subject myself to achieving what will be a difficult feat?
1. to prove that age is just a number
2. to get myself really fit and strong
3. for the bragging rights
to inspire the little girls walking with their moms, the high school girls walking home from school, the older woman who’s eyes light up with possibility…when i whizz by them in my asics and reebok running pants…
you don’t have to run, but you should always strive to fly…
