{ Miraculous Marathon }

Legs are shaking
I am sick to my butterfly stomach
Thrills speed up my spine
This is it…..here we go
Plod on, breathe, press on
I am cheered on.
Plod on, breathe, press on
Progress marked
Breathe…..breathe…..breathe
Can’t look up
FOCUS. BREATHE.
I cannot….do….this
Annoying spectators. Irritating chatter.
GO AWAY.
I CANNOT DO THIS
I am going to die
I AM GOING TO D I E
Keep going
A l m o s t ….. t h e r e
OOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

There she is
My baby girl
It’s over
It was worth it
