Marathoners were inspiring

GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon let average runners shine in the spotlight for a day

I’ve never been more inspired.

As I watched last weekend’s marathon, it wasn’t the so-called elite athletes that impressed me, but those who slogged it out mile after mile.

The professional marathoners are expected to be good – and they were – but those runners who ran for the pure joy of running, through sweat and tears were the ones that left me in awe. I only wish I could run and be so happy doing it.
