On Failure

On Failure

In 2015, I was forced to drop out of my first ultramarathon barely over halfway through the race. In 2014 I ran my first Boston Marathon. After GI distress, ITBS troubles, warm temperatures, and poor pacing I raced my slowest marathon. In 2011, I took the wrong subway train to the start of the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler, couldn’t use the bathroom, had a poor warm-up, and missed a personal best by 5 seconds. In 2008 a severe case of IT Band Syndrome forced me to stop running for six months. I nearly quit running. In 2005, I missed Cross Country All-ECAC (East Coast Athletic Conference) honors by less than a second. I literally had the same finish time as the last all-conference runner. In 2002, I began my college cross country career with a foot injury. Instead of starting with a bang, I started with a limp.
