I turned 40 a year and a half ago, and I started running. A picture of myself playing with my kids at the beach helped. I hardly recognized myself! So I ran. Literally. And since then, I’ve completed a Marathon, a Half Marathon and a Sprint Triathlon.
But the real story is with the Marathon. I actually signed up for the 10k race the same day, but I met a friend at the starting line who dared me to try finish the Half-Marathon with him. So we started running, slowly, chatting along the way, and we ended up doing the entire Marathon! I won’t share my time with you, but it was probably one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.
I hope to be able to make it to the 25 year Reunion next summer and see all of you!
Have a great year,
