The important Q&As

I read this in The Detroit News and it's good and applicable to any athletic event.

These could have been my exact answers after the marathon, especially the last one.

My friends asked me millions of questions afterward: "How many people rode in the ride?" I can't remember now. "What place did you finish?" I don't know. "How long did it take you from beginning to end?" Forever, it seems. "How many hours did you put in training?" Not enough. "Would you do it again?" Yes, I will. But for me, there was only one question I wanted to be able to answer when it was over: "Did you finish?" Yes, I did, and for me that was enough.
