More Marathon Pictures

My legs have decided that they want to be a part of my body again. On Tuesday they were in complete revolt and I assumed they were just going to leave me. I didn't want to have them either because they hurt so much. My quads wanted my legs to be bent. My hamstrings wanted my legs to be straight.

Yesterday I felt good enough to run three. Three slow miles.

Here are some pictures from Sunday:

Experiences just are. And they are unique to each individual. … My running experiences have been overwhelmingly good. With my knowledge and limited skills, I still experience running as something I enjoy and want to encourage others to do. Since there is no hierarchy in experiences, I don’t worry about whether my experience is better or worse than anyone else’s. It is possible at the end of the race to rank people based on the quality of their skill that day but not on the quality of their experience.
I didn't win, or even run as fast as I hoped, but I learned a lot about myself. The experience was incredible.
Others can give you a name or a number, but they can never tell you who you really are. That is something you yourself can only discover from within.
