    Let me brag about something...


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Yesterday I finished my first marathon run!
    I really can't tell you how happy I am!
    The preparations took me over 6 months of traning. But it was worth it just for the moment of happiness after crossing the finish line! :rockin:
    Here's the medal I got (all participants who managed to finish the marathon got them). The marathon took place in the city of Lodz.


    I'm even more happy, because I managed to finish it in less than 4 hours (3h58min32s - to be exact).
    Now I have to rest a bit and hopefully will find more time to play with my knives..

    An accomplishment you should always remember.

    Congrats on an amazing feat. And you did it without anyone chasing you (that would be my motivation ) What was the distance you had to run?

    That's awesome/amazing. I'm horrible at math but I think that's around a 9 minute mile consistently? I would be crawling everywhere after that. Must be all that infi dust in the lungs
