Every start line is an unknown. Sometimes the race doesn't go as you hoped for. Sometimes it goes better.
After an overly stressful few months, the stress was getting to me. To say I was drained, was an understatement. I felt I had nothing in my tank to run this event.
The first mile is an incline that would kill my lungs in the colder temps. When I had crossed the finish line, I finished with an Overall podium spot.
I always wonder how I got on that podium and question if I really earned it. Yet, my body gave me one more time on that podium. Someday soon, I won't be standing on that coveted spot anymore. I will always be grateful for memories like this. Always.
Thank you to @rungum @glukosenergy
