It was 9:29 am, April 8th, 2018 and I’m one minute away from the starting line of my first ever marathon. What pushed me to run a marathon? Initially, it was a joke, one of those checks your mouth has to cash scenarios. However, once I had agreed to it, I was definitely doing it.
So I added it to my Bucket list.
It was the Paris Marathon. This was a memorable experience and one I’ll welcome for years to come. The incentive was I’d get to visit Paris while embarking on a new journey. The good news is that I finished the marathon and might actually attempt it next year to improve my time.
Fifty-five thousand people ran that race that day. We all now have something in common. My point is, no matter the reason you travel, make the best of it.
