THE GODDESS OF WISDOM AND WARFARE
See definition of “athena” below
Running tomorrow in my own version of a marathon, the Salt Lake City 5K. Starts at Liberty Park and finishes at the Gateway fountain and my goal is to jog nonstop and finish in less than 43 minutes. For someone who has struggled her entire life to finish 1 mile without walking, 3.3 miles is the equivalent of a marathon for my body. 32 lbs ago I could not have run a block without severe pain in my joints and today I can finish 4 miles in under an hour and I feel great. As a registered Athena runner (racing category based on weight rather than age) I plan to use my wisdom and warfare attitude to the end with a smile on my face and proud that I have turned a corner in my life.
