To Quote...

“Running a marathon is an experience that's difficult to put into words, how you describe the physical and mental challenges of the 26.2-mile race to those who have never ran one. Well finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement. It's a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible. The thirst you feel in your throat and lungs will be gone minutes after the race is over. The pain in your legs within days, but the memories of your finish will last with you forever. “
