I took a deep breath, closed my eyes and decided to quit at that point rather than try and finish the race and worsen my injury. It took a lot more mental courage to pull out than it did to sign up and train. I had promised Sumit I would come back whole and not broken. Next morning, I took the flight back home. I cried for many many days though. I will go back another year soon, because I know I am persistent.
If there is a storm, then there will be calmness as well.
If there is darkness, then bright light will follow soon.
If there are mountains to climb, then there are rivers to swim too.
If you can walk, then you can indeed run too
And see you at the finish line.
This medal was not just a piece of metal but my most prized possession.
I also have an accurate observation that I am genetically slow when it comes to races, but no one can beat me when I chase a local train.
