Riga Half Marathon 2019 - Riga / Latvia / May19 .
The human body is not a machine and we all are vulnerable. Once you are able to admit this, the beer in the finish line tastes better too.
Yesterday's Riga half marathon medal and the beer are well deserved! It hurted, again... It's been a rule nowadays, well, with a hurt heel and 2 weeks after the Prague Marathon I didn't expect it different. It was clear this is not going to be the season of personal bests.
I LOVE RUNNING and I love racing. But suddenly, it's all different. Suddenly there is no motivation. I cannot wait the finish line, but already on the 7th kilometer? The final time acceptable, half marathon in 1:37, yes, a lot of people are dreaming about this, I know. But what counts is the feeling during the whole 21K.
I am tired. Sitting on a bench in the sunny Estonian city of Tallinn I realize, that I am happy, that I suddenly don't "have to". Not exactly world changing and world saving approach. I can tell you, helping the world can be very exhausting too.
Now I will rest. Few days and weeks. A total break. Almost. This was the plan anyway. I'd love to stand on the 22 June at the start of the marathon, well, most likely just a half marathon, in a small town few hours drive from New York. Time will show... Also telling those, who always knew everything better (they know who they are:)), I am not quiting. More the opposite, I will now rest and relax, to be back even stronger. Even more crazy things are waiting!
In life you also need to know how to slow down, exactly for the reason to sprint again. Faster, wilder! And all at the right time.
Soo... cheers! Literally.
