I AM RUNNING A MARATHON TODAY.
I’m currently sitting on the bathroom floor of the Hotel Modera (highly recommended for the Portland Marathon btw). I set my alarm for 6 but woke up at 5 and thought I might get a head start on the essential morning activities. Some things you normally do in a bathroom (which went quite well thankyaJesus) and some things you don’t normally do like eat breakfast.
I attempted to write a training wrap-up post yesterday but I couldn’t find any way to articulate what this training cycle has been like.
They’ve been the best months of my entire life.
I loved this process so much. I loved getting stronger. I loved getting happier. I loved focusing on something so special.
I loved challenging every aspect of my history.
Last night, my parents picked Tim up from the airport and I guess the first thing my dad said was “can you f*cking believe Shauna is running a marathon?” My dad is my BFF for life and número UNO supporter. Even he still finds it hard to believe. I live it every day and I still had so many emotional moments where I looked with absolute awe at the changes to my self.
I am so looking forward to this very long victory lap. I’m physically and emotionally prepared to fully acknowledge and celebrate becoming the woman I want to be.
Thank you for letting me share this with you.
