These past few weeks have been a completely different post-marathon experience than Boston. After Boston, I tried to tell myself I was recovering just fine, but I wasn’t. I was physically broken down and mentally exhausted. This time, I’m eager and ready to take on new goals and improve. I have been looking forward to these new goals since I crossed the finish line in Houston.
