I’m thinking today about the people I know across my city who are running in a marathon event tomorrow. Some to raise money for good causes, some no doubt bordering on being professional runners who will be closely monitoring their PBs, and some newbie runners attempting this distance in competition for the first time.
Well, I’m in awe of all of them. Genuinely.
And while I might be looking forward to a post-event Champagne celebration with one of them in particular (well, ok, we might just go for coffee … and that’s ok!), I will be raising a metaphorical glass to all runners for their amazing efforts and stamina and determination.
While I will never, ever be a runner, my running friends are most definitely showing me the way.
