I ran a 5K this past weekend (twice, in fact!).
Afterwards, I decided immediately that I did not want my running experiences to end there.
I made the decision to run a Turkey Trot FIVE MILER on Thanksgiving morning, with my husband.
Thanksgiving isn’t very far away, is it?!!!!!
Anyhoo, this morning was my first time to run something longer than 3 miles.
I went for it and ran 4.2 miles in 51 minutes. That includes my 2 minute warm-up walk and 3 minutes of walking in the middle. My iPod battery died around mile 3.25 and from there on out, I just said “Screw it” and ran like no other. Once I got my breathing under control and my feet pounding the pavement in a steady beat, I hauled ass!
4.2 miles in 51 minutes. Yeah, I know it’s not the fastest time out there, but I don’t care. I feel awesome and like I have accomplished something. I HAVE accomplished something.
I am going to keep running.
