I'm not a runner. I admire runners. I think they are disciplined and strong. I have tried to emulate runners. Two times now, I have participated in 1/2 marathons in order to see if I could discipline myself as runners do. I completed the 1/2 marathons, and actually did alright...but it wasn't discipline that got me through it. It was adrenaline.
I'm not a runner. But, I signed up for another 1/2 marathon. It was mainly out of stupidity. Nonetheless, I'm doing it. And this time around, it's been so so so hard for me to run. I fear huge embarrassment. So, come Saturday, March 3, we'll just have to see how I do.
I'm not a runner, but I can run -- or trot.
