Coming down off the "Runner's High"

Wow! I think that I am just now coming down from the HIGH I have been on since crossing the finish line.

Interesting, I know. No one told me that my emotions would be so out of whack. Is this normal? CC POTY, where are you with your random-stalker-like comments when I need them? Gmac, did you do this?

I am emotional, maybe I am just tired. Maybe I have been over-stimulated.

Maybe the fact that I am just almost in unbelief. Do you see that?------>
Only 5 days since the marathon! Wow, that was just a few days ago! And, already, I have packed so much into the days between now and then.

And, maybe, just maybe, the continued escalation of family drama is never good for my emotions. Geez, it is never gonna end. Enough said on that one.

So, for now, I guess I will sit here with my fever-ridden Chappy, and we will snuggle on the couch, and watch endless, mindless episodes of the Suite Life of Zack and Cody!

And, I will cry. Goodness, this is ridiculous!

Most, if not all, training programs focus on the physical and mental preparation, but emotions play a HUGE role starting at about mile 24. At that point, you realize that you're going to make it, and you let yourself reflect on all that it took to get you to that point. Your sacrifices, your family's sacrifices yet unwavering support, and the encouragement of all of your friends becomes very real for those last 2.2 miles. And the emotion last as long as the DOMS. Congrats on the marathon, and you should really close your blinds.
