Although I do love to run, a full marathon was too daunting. The 10km road race seemed like the race for me. Dressed in my bright orange spandex D&G boxer briefs and matching orange shirt from the Turkish bazaar, I line up for the start bursting with anticipation. We took the first 5km at a good steady pace, then switched being leaders and puling each other through the herd for the second half. Finally, for the last lap in the Olympic stadium we gave it all we had left. Adorned with my medal, I walked away from the stadium of champions pleased with my time of 57min 49sec.
