Sadly, I don’t have any pictures of me running track in high school. Which is probably a good thing, come to think of it.
I was the slowest runner on the track team. I felt that I didn’t deserve to consider myself a member of the track team or a runner.
But, really, you know what the slowest runner on the track team is? A runner.
And I still am.
Here’s me at the end of my very first half marathon in 2009, 20 years after being that slowest runner and 5 years ago.
I’ll post my marathon report from Sunday’s marathon a little later today. How did it get to be Thursday already?
