“It was tough. Emotionally, I was pretty drained after that 10K, I was very disappointed after that. But I think it’s just a matter of collecting yourself, giving it a few days to be grieve and be angry, but then you focus on the next one. I had someone tell me that there’s still another chapter to write so I just had to move on. And you know, my training has gone great for the marathon. I was watching Happy Gilmore the other day and you know, he fights being a golfer for a while saying he’s a hockey player. And I fought being a marathoner and wanted to run on the track. But maybe this is my best event.”
