I just realize I did a marathon.

Woohooo..tonight as I was driving over to my co-worker's place to fix his comp, I realize I have just run a marathon. To be honest, I am not feeling SUPER SUPER joy. But In the car I was screaming out. I think I am slowly digesting it. A marathoner. What a weird thing to say.

Later tonight I went to Second Cup to visit Jade. I ordered a Ice Cafe Latte and a big slice of Truffle cake. Yes I am loosening my diet a bit :). It felt great. Coffee again. I figure this week, I will be normal. What a weird thing to say. Just doing normal everyday going becomes a luxury. That's good. It makes me more humble and more grateful for the little things that God bless me.

I am very satisfy with my accomplishment. I can still recall the condition..the wind was strong, the air was cold, the road is long. But I wouldn't want it any other way. The harsher it is, the better. The more I struggle, the more I will grow.

I am so going to enjoy this winter when I run in -20 weather. I told Jade if I can run in such harsh weather, running in 30 degrees in the heat is nothing :). Of course, safety is the concern. I will make sure I am well equip to protect myself from the cold.

Yes, a post race report will be up. I need to sit down and analyze my own expeirence till I am paralyze :). Every detail, every lesson....so if u come here often, in the next few days, u might want to bring out that tri geek hat of yours. And pls, if there is something u feel I need to correct or can help me, let me know. I am still learn and a endurance newbie :)

THAT should be in your header. What a perfect summary of being an endurance athlete - and a well-centered person for that matter.

The more I struggle...how true is that. I want the races easy so that I can find success, but success by what definition? It is such a greater success when I count it all joy when I fall into various trials...Now that's a good meditation for the day. Thanks!

yes yes...write up your post race report. I'd love to hear it. I don't know the world of atheletism ....well, i guess i can't say that...but more like...actual use of larger muscles. because I am one, but using more smaller parts of the body. hahaha. yes. be careful of running in the cold. i say CRAZY you are, but God has given you this body and you are using it to the max, and you are such an inspiration to ppl. thanks thanks!
