I Ran My First Marathon…

It was a complete catastrophe — but I’m really pleased with it.

Here’s me, finishing the marathon. Not looking too pleased about it, to be honest. (Spoilers: I wasn’t.)

We’ve all seen those cheesy American movies that start with a short clip (usually of a barely-not-prepubescent child being embarrassing), a freeze frame, and a voice-over of the main character saying “Yup, that’s me. You’re probably wondering how I got here.”
