My bones ache, I am so tired. And I didn’t even achieve my goal. I wanted to run 100 miles and yet again I only made it to 100km.
I say only, but this was on the Jurassic coastline and the terrain and the weather were awful. If you have ever visited that part of the world, you will know just how steep some of those hills are.
Still, that doesn’t take away the disappointment when you have literally put every last bit of energy into getting somewhere and you don’t make it. Failure is a part of being human, but it also makes us feel pretty crappy.
I hope that if anyone reading this has failed at anything recently, then you can pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep on trying.
I am exhausted, right now. I literally feel like I want to cry because everything hurts and the serotonin levels in my brain are completely out of whack. I tried so hard that I was hallucinating and I don’t know if I can put my body through that kind of abuse again. This might be a sign that I’m getting just a little bit too old. Perhaps I should just pour my energy into something a bit more sedate like writing?

I give you so much credit for putting yourself out there as you did. I admire you for it. That took courage!
It took a little bit of stupidity too!
I admire you for trying as hard as you did. Just remember: you still get credit for trying, and if you try more times, it will get easier and easier.
Aw thanks. Even though I didn’t finish it was still an amazing adventure and money can’t buy that kind of experience.
