"Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity."~Louis Pasteur
This is a picture of me finishing my very first marathon. I love this horrible picture of me. It shows in my whole body how hard it was for me to finish that race. My body looks as it was, incredibly tense. My neck looks like it might burst, my legs look exhausted, I look as if I might collapse and I can barely look up at the photographer who is standing at the finish line. Running that distance may have gotten easier, but it is never easy. That race and every race since could never have been completed if I didn't want to succeed, if I ever had any doubt in my abilities.
