Recount Text: Joining Chicago Marathon

Last year I joined the Chicago Marathon, my first marathon contest. I had to run 26,2 miles to complete it. It was hard.
At first, I just wanted to get the experience of joining a marathon. I thought it would be one life time experience. After finishing it, I changed my mind. I wanted to join another one.

It was a very wonderful thing for me. So I decided that I had to join another marathon the following year.
