I was musing about my life recently. The things I had accomplished and the things I had still to do. i completed a marathon in 50 states. I started the goals with others but I completed it by myself. I got so accustomed to arriving in a state and renting a car . Going through packet pick up and those long miles on the route often alone and at the back of the pack. But determined to finish - cos I couldn't afford to return. Feeling very satisfied at the end.
Then I decided I needed to see Canada. So new goal each province. But this time, no pressure, I'd stay longer and enjoy the province. Started with Quebec and then next year was Newfoundland. This year was supposed to be Alberta and Saskatchewan but Covid-19 put an end to that. I maintained the training and the Alberta would have been Sunday Aug 16. I can't even do a virtual cos we are on lockdown.
So the programme called for 1mile run most of the week. So most of the week I've been walking and enjoying my music. Not worrying about pace - just soaking in the atmosphere. Tomorrow I will take my camera and give an August update of scenes I took in May when we had our 1st lockdown.
I'm thankful for the memories and hopeful that there will still be marathons in new locales.
