I had of course hoped for a larger loss, but as I am realizing, this is about finishing the marathon, not the sprint. It is not about how fast I get to the end of the race it is about making it to the finish line.
I’m sure that some marathoners have to walk a portion of their first marathon in order to get to the end. Well, I am in one of my walking spots.
I am still in the race, still making progress, and that is what counts. I’m certain that my body will cooperate more in a little bit and then I will feel as thought I am running again toward my goal.
