Real athletes run. Others just play games

Success isn't how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started.”

As we approached the START line at this morning’s Intact Edmonton Marathon Weekend’s 5km Fun Run, the event emcee announced to all athletes that the race was set to begin in a few minutes.

Athletes. Us.

My friend Meena and I laughed at the fact that we had been propelled to the title of athlete, simply for having signed up for the 5km Fun Run.

And my husband even commented that Meena and I were probably more accustomed to being labeled as “math-letes” since we both lean more towards being nerdy rather than athletic.

And, yet, we were still able to finish the race with a new personal best time and smiles on our faces.
