I love this paragraph:

“I’d stepped out of my own way, one foot in front of the other, for many miles and many hours. I didn’t have transcendent highs, but nor did I have wrecking lows. In this way it wasn’t a spectacular race, which made it, in its own way, sort of spectacular.”

As a marathoner, I empathize with this. Sometimes, the ordinary moments are the most extraordinary.
