Several of the die hard marathoners ran another marathon on the ship today. I had planned to do that but considering how exhausted I have been after the first two land marathons, I chose to stick with the shortest race distance. In fact, even though we could get a medal for any distance, I didn't plan on running at all. But once I went up to the ship track and saw the others running, I decided to kick off my shoes and do just a simple 5k in my bare feet. It was fun but I'm glad I didn't wear myself out and lower my chances of finishing the marathon the next day in Barbados.
I wish I had been able to run the full marathon though. I am running these races with some of the most accomplished and amazing runners in the marathon world. I feel in awe of simply being in their presence!
