I am back to running again. Up to half an hour now. I have bounced back much easier this time than with the first child. It feels wonderful to run again, even if I cannot go on those long runs when I would lose myself in thought and music. It feels good to move freely and connect with my body again. I’m aiming to do a five K soon and a ten K after that. And another marathon sometime.
Reading this review of the Reggae Marathon makes me nostalgic for those long runs and for how proud I was of finishing my first marathon. And to do it On such a mentally challenging course in a country I love.
