A caffeine shot
There was so much pain in her body she felt like she had moved to old age overnight.
Adrenalin pumping, forcing legs on.
Mentally she was challenged but the ‘Can I go on?’ was losing out to ‘I will go on’.
She had seen some fall by the wayside along the way. Exhaustion, pain or injury taking them.
Her heart went out to these gallant people.
She was touched by all who had come out to offer support.
It brought tears to her eyes.
She turned the final corner and saw it.The finish line — another 26.2 miles completed!
