Yup I had to pee, my laces came loose, and I had difficulty surpassing others that were in my way to run at my pace. I ignored that I had to pee, tied my laces and looked for practical and safe ways to run. After 7km I had a hard time to keep the pace I started at in the beginning, I had raised the bar very high and i started to notice it physically. The only thing I thought was: keep on going, do not stop!
I saw the finish and I was really almost at my limits. I was so happy with the time and when I heard my friend cheering I instantly started crying after reaching the finish. It was a bit funny because I wasn’t sad at all. I actually was very proud, that I overcame my own fears by pushing myself. It feels liberating to know you can always go further than you think!
When I got home I was so tired, fulfilled and grateful for all the experiences I have had in such a short time. So many beautiful people with great passions in such a great city. I could not have imagined that my first experience as a “Fit girl in Paris” would be so amazing. One of the best events I have had ever. And about my PB? I did the course in 45 min and 36 sec , which I never had could imagine to start with. Let’s see how far I can get from now on 😀
