In the New Year of 2013, I decided I was going to run in the 25 kilometers Abiriba Marathon. I did not just decide that day, I had been saying I would since I saw the runners arrive at the finish line at Okpu Achi the previous year and I was particularly pleased when my cousins UK and David said they were going to run too. We had not trained at all, not once but we were sure we were going to come in among the first ten. After all, it is just 25 kilometers and it wasn’t as if we were going to be running all through not to mention we are young and able bodied.
