Jill Ritchie had envisioned this moment. Month after month, she trained ritually and vigorously, just for this day. She studied the terrain and knew the course well. So as she approached the crest of the legendary Heartbreak Hill, the famous landmark of the Boston Marathon, she knew she only had five more miles to the finish line. But her legs were aching, her energy was nearly drained, and she felt as if she couldn’t take one more stride.
Then it happened. Jill saw her entire family clapping for her at the top of the hill, holding a huge banner signed by her friends. She was instantly invigorated and filled with joy. Miraculously, she picked up her pace and every step became a triumph. As she neared her family, she could see their eyes overflowing with tears, knowing she was about to fulfill a lifelong dream. Her husband ran up next to her and asked how she was feeling. With her own eyes brimming, she rejoiced, “Not great—but I’m going to finish!” And she finished strong for a first-timer, in an impressive 3:40.
In it for the Long Run
