Funny story. In elementary school, with no warning or training or anything….they forced us to run a mile. It was extremely hard for me. My side cramped up. I had to start walking a few times. I was winded. It’s hard to remember all of the details but I probably crawled across the finish line right behind the kids that walked. I decided then and there that I would never run a mile again.
I tell you this story to say: thanks, but no thanks on the marathon offer.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great article.
I’ll just run my marathon in metaphor form. :)
