Five Reasons Why Running a Half Marathon is Like Taking the Bar Exam

1. You realize part way through that all of your studying/training was for a reason and you are glad you didn't spend that extra time watching TV.

2. Although you never spoke of it, you always had a twinge of doubt that you couldn't do it. You are happy when you realize you are doing it.

3. You spend the first few days after the "big day" sort of lost. For the past two months of your life you lived by a precise schedule, with one set goal. You don't know what to do with your free time now that it is over.

4. People keep asking you about it. It sounds better each time you talk about it and you start convincing yourself it wasn't so bad.

5. You start to wonder what is next.

  • I thought that your comparisions were great. WHat do you do when you have already taken a tough bar exam-take California:)

  • Your top 5 list makes complete sense. So what's next? The pumpkins in the park is a long way away.. Rest up and get back out there..

    I passed the bar, but then I went back and had a couple of drinks...

  • I felt so lost after I finished my half marathon too! I came home and immediately started surfing the web to pick out my next half. It's so addictive...
