Today was the Barringtons Hospital Great Limerick Run and I participated in the half marathon. I definitely was not fully prepared but I'll do a full blog post on the run in the next few days.
For me, it was so tough. We had 4 seasons in one day and by the 9.5mile marker I was like a drowned rat and struggle in a big way. By the time I got to the 12.5mile mark I was running SLOWLY and in tears because I knew my time was crap, I felt crap and I was exhausted!
At that stage, with 1/2 mile to go, 4 or 5 people tapped me on the back and said those #3LittleWords:
"Push through it"
I needed that encouragement. It was from total strangers but it was so nice. I struggled so much and for those people to acknowledge me, a random person, it felt great and have me the lift that I needed to finish the race!
Thank you to those people, who ever you are, I really appreciate the encouragement!
Until the next time, always remember to be:
