My legs are in pain. The past two days I could barely stand, and walking straight is definitely an ordeal. I’ve iced my legs, massaged them, applied bandages… and yet they’re still in pain.
Was it all worth it? To push myself beyond what I had thought were my limits… but with one look at my finisher’s trophy and medal… the answer is yes.
My body was destroyed but it is healing now… if it were my spirit that was broken… I don’t know how long I would have needed to recover…
Would I do it again? I don’t know… for now, I just want to savor the elation and all the pain of completing this one.
