First P @firstprize

I am a runner! I absolutely love it. It's been intense, exciting, relaxing, healing and sometimes painful - an incredible journey - one I want to continue for as long as I can....

First P Running

Stattogold First P logged 24.32 km of Running in 2:12:19 today
It's been awhile since I enjoyed my run as much as I did today. I've been putting in the miles and sticking to my marathon training as closely as possible but I've not been feeling it. On top of that I've been assailed with doubts lately about this whole marathon thing, asking myself what the hell I was doing. Thankfully that has all been blown away. What changed? One, folks whose marathon training I've been following (@melissa F. and @elliot W. among them) performed so brilliantly in their races that I realised - I can do this! I also realised I owe it to them to do well too. Two, I revisited my favourite books on running - among them "Once A Runner" - and found inspiration. Suddenly the whole marathon training appeared in a different light and today's run took on new meaning. The plan called for a 15-mile run at a pace of 8:50 - 9:00. Oddly I felt if I can get this one done then I'm ready. So i took it seriously and prepared well for it. And wow! it was great. In fact for the first few miles I had a hard time restraining myself, my senses were unusually sharpened- I seemed to notice everything along the route the foxes darting across my path, the buses getting ready for the day in Leyton, the drunkard weaving along the road at Stratford, that beautiful glowing roundabout in Barking, the smell of curry in Ilford, the party goers at Manor Park stopping to ask me how long I had been running (that surprised me - I usually get taunts from them).......
It was a good run.
