I also would like a better MCM memory. I would like the experience of a Marine putting a medal around my neck. Not last year's memory of trying not to cry as they told me they ran out of medals and then placed a 10K medal around my neck.
I remember being so scared of running a full marathon. Will I be able to do it? Will my knee hold up? Mentally can I hold up? And I came through and finished. So I proved I could run a full. I don't know if I have ever felt more emotions than I did crossing that finish line. I put my name into the lottery to see if I could come back and tackle 26.2 and see what I can do with it the second time around. I figured if I put my name in and didn't get in, it wasn't meant to be. I would be fine with that. But what if the universe thinks I should try it again too?
So I know I said I was one and done, but a girl can change her mind. I'm going back to see what I can do the second time around. The universe thinks I should try it again. I got in to the Marine Corps Marathon! Who knows maybe I will fall in love with the distance or maybe I will say two and done. We will see.
