“It is such a long race, but whey you are nearing the finish you start to savor every moment because you know it is coming to an end.” After 42 days of running Sarah has completed 2100 miles. Certainly not the kind of distance she had hoped for at the beginning, now so many weeks ago, and yet she has run for more days and for a longer distance than she has ever done before.
For quite a long time now the big, 3100 mile finish line just drew further and further away from her ability to reach it.(This time) Many other athletes when faced with this discouraging scenario would have simply opted out. Packed their bags and headed off instead to warm showers and soft beds.
