As I crossed the finish line in 2021, my third marathon. I was overwhelmed with a huge wave of emotions. Firstly, I am not going to lie, I was disappointed in my posted time. Then mere seconds later immense sense of, “Holy SH$# !! Neil, you did it! washed over me. I was so freakin happy and proud of myself. Here I was at fifty-nine years of age and I had just run 42.2 km! (Okay, there was some walking 🙂 But, “SH$% Neil, you just did your third marathon!”
