There's a lot to be said about finishing what you start. Even if you hadn't originally planned on starting it.
Last month, a 12 year old girl who thought she had lined up late to run in a 5k was actually early.
LeeAdianez Rodriquezgot to the race's starting line and saw runners ahead of her had already begun. So she caught up with them and began running in what she thought was the Rochester Flower City Challenge - a 3.1 mile course.
But her race was actually scheduled to start 15 minutes later. So who was she running with?
Midway through, she realized she was running a 13.1 mile course - a whopping 10 miles more than her original intent, but she decided to keep going.
Not only did she not stop, but she completed it, with a time of 2 hours and 43 minutes.
What a great story! How being prompt, though not necessarily punctual, still led to progress!
