The first 15k was fine. The last 6k hurt a bit, but pretty happy with my time - 2:03:34. That was my first 21k event!
The pain was good. Felt good to be that physically exhausted. But the nauseous bit wasn't so fun. I've never felt like that before. I guess I must have pushed harder than I ever have. But honestly, the last 3km, I was merely putting one foot in front of the other, oblivious to everything around me, pushing that pain away with every new step.
Sometimes I wish I emotional pain were that easy to conquer.
