Yep it is. Sitting here with the old stopwatch, lifelong accoutrement.. First off the line, first at the tape, doesn’t matter the distance. Wire to wire my favorite way of winning.
Ah but those times. Those are the bedrock of your resume.
I’m so glad I gave everything. Every time. I set back from running now knowing I gave it my all. My times speak for themselves. I can do nothing more. Like you, I wish mine were faster. I dedicated more of myself than the vast majority have the luxury to. The way things worked out for me, three decades worth of seeking potential and honesty.
I wouldn’t change a thing. Except some times.
