It was my first official race.
Prepared and excited.
Arrived at the Starting Line early.
Brought nothing but guts.
Was running in pain just after 2 kms until the 4th.
This is my 3rd Full Marathon.
Will run with lots of friends.
Will bring hydration belt and chewables.
Loading more guts.
Will run in an easy pace to avoid pain.
Will finish just fine.
I ran 8kms then. Now, about to take on a 42Kms.
I was so new then, I dont look as old now.
I have no strategy then, I am wiser now.
I dont know my pace then, I am a PACER now.
I once was a newbie…I still am.
I’d like to Insist!
