They say running a marathon is an experience that’s difficult to put into words.
I wouldn’t know about that. Because, I have never run.
However, I know how it feels to chase a marathoner.
I know how to meet him every few miles.
I know how much of navigating around roadblocks is required.
I know how it feels to hear thumping feet.
I know how it feels to cheer for strangers.
I know how my spirit soars as I watch the power of the human spirit from the sidelines.
I know how my heart skips a beat when I see him.
I know how tired he must be.
I know how he will always start sprinting when he sees me.
I know he will raise his hand to hi-fi my outreached hand.
I know he will be more proud of me (than I am of him) because I got there to cheer for him at almost every mile.
It is quite a experience. Chasing a marathoner is an experience that’s difficult to put into words.
The boys and I have been chasing runners at Primos Run since 7am today.
