This sounds rather shallow. I lost the opportunity to run a marathon. I wanted to run one marathon. Not more than one, mind you. After completing a handful of half-marathons I wanted to run one full marathon but that is not to be. Even though it doesn’t compare to the loss others are experiencing it is still a loss…
- Loss of a dream
- Claiming the reality that my body won’t always do what I want it to do
I’m still working on letting this dream go. I’ll be at DisneyWorld in January to cheer on my friend (who I talked into this adventure!) and hopefully bring some closure to this loss.
Damn. I really wanted that medal!
