Column: First marathon was a learning experience
"We learn geology the morning after the earthquake." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
That quote speaks to me. When I woke up this morning, less than 24 hours removed from my first marathon, I descended the steps at our house one step at a time.
On my posterior. No joke.
I tried the first step upright but, despite supporting myself with the banister, it felt as though someone thrust a dagger into my left calf.
But the quote doesn’t just resonate because my body continues to feel the aftershocks of running my first marathon Saturday.
