What I Learned Watching a Marathon

This weekend I chased Apple Guy around Austin as he owned 26.2 miles. 

Here's what I learned: 

1) Marathons make me emotional in the best way. Like total goosebumps & tears watching people give it their all at the 14 mile mark, the 21 mile mark and the finish. 

2) The sign game is strong out on the streets. Favorites include: ‘Hello from the lazy side’ & ‘Y’all are crazy’ & ’You’re running better than the government.' I'll have to up my game for the next race. 

3) I have mad love and respect for my guy. I run 3 miles and we can call it a day. The endurance and sheer mental strength needed to run 26.2 miles is awe inspiring. 

Will I ever run a marathon? Who knows. All I know is that if I do, there better be dark chocolate at the end.

Although I can say that after watching Apple Guy own his second marathon, I pushed myself a little further this week on my runs.

Motivational for the reals y’all.
