Around the Bay
I registered for the Around the Bay 30k road race in Hamilton on March 25th, 2007. I’ve never run 30 kilometres before. I can safely say that the furthest distance my legs have ever taken me in one consecutive journey is 21.1 kilometres.
It feels good, though, despite the uncertainty.
One of the girls who has joined my Learn to Run Club at school (we’re running a 5k race this weekend), said to me today, “Miss Loftus, I can’t believe you’re going to run 30 kilometres.”
I replied, “I’m having trouble believing it myself.”
Then I came across a really fitting quote, by T.S. Eliot:
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go”
Let’s find out, shall we?
