From 2km to 21km

“Hey, just 2km, why not 20km?”

That was my first idea of getting myself to 21km non-stop running aka half-marathon.

The interesting point is that this idea came out in the tough time preparing for the current job with this quote in the company:

“I am in a marathon, not a sprint, and no matter how far away the goal is, the only way to get there is by putting one foot in front of another every day. Given time, there is no problem that’s insurmountable.”

That’s totally true for me reaching 21km. It was not too difficult for me to reach 5km, then 10km. However, 21km requires a lot of practices, and that’s really one foot every day makes incremental changes to 21km.

In the end, that has been much more than just getting the goal: working better and even seeing the interesting things when running.

Carpe diem!

Medals – the show off time
