Well my dear blogger friends I had a totally different post in mind for today. Let’s start with the bad news:
I didn’t finish the half marathon.
I had to stop around 1 hour because of the heat. After I almost fainted 3 times I decided it wouldn’t be wise to continue and had to leave the race.
No one could be more disappointed than me and I cried when I had to stop. This wasn’t how I imagined it would go today. I was so ready for it but it was just too hot. When I picked up my race bib Sunday they said there would be 3700 participants for the half. When I look at the results I see only 2100 people have finished it.
I want to thank you my blogger friends from the bottom of my heart for believing in me and supporting me and I truly hope you will continue to do that because I’m sure as hell going to try again.
I feel I’ve let R., my family, you and everyone who has been supporting me on my journey to this, down.
I’m taking tonight of from blog reading and the internet because physically I’m okay but right now mentally I’m broken and tears of frustration are still coming every now and then.
I’m really sorry I let you down but most of all that I let myself down even though the weather was the only thing not right today. Had it been cooler I would definitely have finished.
