One #FindYourStrong Marathon, Two Voices: Marianne’s Race Recap #womensrunning

Eventually I checked my phone again to see this modified picture of myself that Gina had sent. It helped me to start running again. I realized that same brain that was selling reasons not to try so hard for the last few miles was still hiding some fire. I hit 24 and started digging deep. I told myself that I could do 2 miles. That I had to work really hard to run even two miles when I first started 12 years ago. I repeated those words from Gina’s text: “I can. I will. I can. I will.” I repeated what a friend holds on a sign when she spectates, “This is happening.” I repeated my PhD adviser’s words from her first marathon “Patience and determination.” I repeated those of my department chair “Focus. Finish.” At 25 and a bit, I took out the headphones. I rounded a corner and a beautiful orange butterfly stayed with me for probably 50 steps. I sped up.
