Here is Melisa's story:
"Following my first pregnancy, I started exercising and running. I started with short distances, 2 to 3 km with breaks from walking, must say that I am a former smoker. Then , I ran a little longer each time, eventually running 10-12km several times a week.
I never felt the need to do an official race. For lack of time, motivation and above all, I told myself that I did not need it, that I was not in competition with anyone and that I knew my running speed. I didn't want to plan and put an official race on my agenda. However, I always told myself that I had to try it one day. So I signed up for an official race as soon as these resumed after the pandemic.
Surprisingly, an official race has nothing to do with a usual outing. Excitement and feverishness are at their peak at the start line. To be in its intense bubble, a bubble that I savored from start to finish. Control my thoughts and my little sores, mental and physical, throughout the course. It's seeing the finish line and accelerating even if you think you can't go any faster.
In reality, it is not a competition with others but a competition with oneself. It is to see how far we can push our machine. I accomplished my half-marathon under the time I had set myself and by a lot. I was the first surprise. I will definitely repeat the experience, I really had the sting.
For those who are reluctant to take the plunge, this is an experience you absolutely must try, regardless of the distance. It is a feeling of accomplishment and pride. I am very proud of my medal.
My next challenge: the marathon. My 1st objective will first be to finish it. "Melisaa
