It’s funny that I wrote about failure, disappointment, and rejection a few days ago, and one of the disappointments (I have learned not to look at it as a failure) was when I didn’t finish the Marine Corps Marathon in 2014. Today, even after two successful MCM finishes, I found myself getting really emotional when I beat the race cutoffs without having to worry about it. It’s amazing how far I have come in five years, and today was an amazing day to celebrate that progress. Even with tough conditions, we made it and finished strong. Hopefully, it’ll just keep getting better.
As is always the deal with race reports, if I don’t write it by tomorrow, it’s probably not going to happen. I hope to get to it tomorrow, though, because this is a race worth documenting. I’m just really tired right now!
Something that made today great: A new 50K PR!
Time I woke up: 5:00 am
