It is just after 5 AM and I am ready to go. I am not going to win anything. I am not going to impress anybody with my time. Nobody told me that I ought to do this. No one even asked me to do this. The fact is, I might not even be able to finish. So, why am I even attempting this? Why have I sacrificed for months and months for this moment?
To run a marathon is one of the most challenging things a person can ever attempt to do. And so just in the attempt, there is great satisfaction and accomplishment.
I am going out there this morning to try. And that is enough.
