Congrats to Susan Mernit at Yahoo for completing her first half marathon.
I had a long, miserable run on Sunday for about the same length of time (3:15). I almost bailed at 4 miles – I was tired, my left knee is inflamed and probably a little infected from my fall earlier this week, and I was up in Keystone at 9000 feet. My friend Paul joined me at mile 10 or so – when Renee and Amy dropped him off, all I could do was shake my head and say “man – this sucks.”
Sometimes the runs are great, sometimes they aren’t. But – they all require that you put one foot in front of the other. Just like (metaphorically) so many other things in life.
