When I saw it, two thoughts went through my head simultaneously:
1. On paper, 26 miles looks manageable. I can do this!
2. On paper, 26 miles looks so long. I'm going to die!
On the one hand, I stare at the map and I get excited. I picture the adventure that lies ahead of me. I picture the crowds of people cheering me along. I picture myself crossing the finish line of my first marathon.
On the other hand, I picture the opposite. The grueling, pain-filled torture that I will be putting myself through.
...this just got real!
I'm getting so close to my fundraising goal!
