SPIRIT OF THE MARATHON....

So when am I running this third marathon????????? That's how good it was, I want to start training and get that feeling again!

Spirit of the marathon was so AWESOME!! I have a soft spot for the 71 years old marathoner who ran his first marathon when he was 65 and was running this one with his daughter.

I also really liked Lori, she's a grad student like myself, and running by herself which takes lot of inner motivation. When people where shouthing her name and she was waiving it reminded me how felt during my marathon and how happy I was. I shared a few tears, especially when they crossed the finish line....

This night out definitely cheered me up for my upcoming thesis defense. I finished marathons, I can do anything-type-thing =)

I am envious - alas, there was no showing in Halifax. When I had initially heard that it was going to be shown in Canada I had high hopes of seeing it. Oh well, there will always be the dvd.

I could use the inspiration.
