I don’t get to race very often, but every time I get the opportunity to line up at a starting line is a wonderful experience! I am a back-of-the-packer and a self proclaimed slow runner and I’m ok with that! I don’t race to beat anyone, sometimes I don’t even race to beat a certain time. I do it to to prove to myself that I can and will show up. That I can do hard things. That I have courage, strength, and endurance. I may never break the tape in a race or win an age group award, but so far I’ve won almost every race I’ve run.
