I never thought I
would run a marathon.
Sure, other people
did it, but I wasn’t a runner and it just didn’t seem like something I could
do. I had never run more than 2 or 3 miles at a time in my life, and 26.2
seemed a long way off. Even though it had an allure (my dad had run a couple
back in the day), I just didn’t think I’d be able to do it – I just wasn’t a
