half marathon, completed

GUESS WHO JUST COMPLETED A HALF MARATHON!! that's right, me! the least sporty, athletic individual to ever walk the earth just ran 21.8km. my entire body is sore and i want to sleep forever. however, i am very proud of myself for doing something that was completely out of my comfort zone and something i never thought that i would achieve. i ran the half marathon for great ormond street hospital because i think they do such great work and because of my personal connection with them. the hospital worked tirelessly to save the life of my fifteen month old cousin, nicholas and even though they were unsuccessful, their dedication lasted until the very end. the nurses and doctors were pillars of support for my family and everyone grew very close to the amazing individuals working there. i was only six or seven when the tragedy happened, but i knew even then that i wanted to give something back. i can't say that i am desperate to do another half marathon anytime soon, but it was a rewarding experience all the same!
