I want to say its strange watching Marion race and get all this media attention, but it isn’t. I’ve been expecting this for years, and I’ve been surprised I hadn’t seen her until now. She just blew away the competition, and some people were amazed, but for me… well I’ve seen her run before. I know she’s fuckin’ fast. I’d be surprised if I didn’t see her out there, meters ahead of the competition.
Watching her, though, has brought back some of my self-doubt… my concerns that I haven’t really accomplished much since high school. I mean, here she is, the world is watching her. She’s married. She’s accomplishing her life goals. But where am I?
