|My first marathon 16 years ago|
Probably more out of sympathy than anything else Ive had lots of advice this past week. Most of it constructive and some of it, well you be the judge. Mum suggested I take supplements and in particular magnesium. She also said she thought I was over doing it to which I replied "If I had run any slower you would have passed me". A co-worker thought the full marathon might be just a little too far and I should try the half. Another co-worker asked if I had won the race. When I told her I came 239/1153 she asked me if I was disappointed.
Bringing way more balance to the debate of why I'm not the runner I thought I was were the comments to my last post from Scott, Richard and Bob. Each in their own way have made it very clear that if my goal is truly a Boston Qualifying time Ill need to run further but with patience and always with purpose. With their help I present to you my new two part road to redemption.
