    Good Luck!! You are so right its not the timing or the distance, its the not giving up. My puny 5K was tough but I never ran before especially through the mud. BUT it was fun, I didn’t quit, I wasn’t too far behind other runners and I finished just 8 minutes over the time I wanted. Good Day!!!

    I also experienced a lot of sadness during that time as my family lost three wonderful people. Two months before, around the time of one funeral, I nursed a calf injury. One month before, bronchitis. Although I knew I was sick, I didn’t know that I had bronchitis until after the race. Not wanting to waste five months of training, I ran it. I kept up with my running buddy for the first half; second half, I was tired; last 8 miles, I was angry and cursing. I finished, I think in 4:30 hours; trained for a 4:00 finish pre-bronchitis. Swore I would never do it again. Limped around and coughed for a few weeks thereafter.
