So I bet you are wondering, is she still running? The answer, yes. Yay me! I am actually quite proud of myself. I'll admit that at times I do get discouraged, my foot pain has slowed me down and scheduling conflicts prevent me from running quite as much as I would like to, however......
Just a little sweaty :)
Today I achieved a nice little mini-goal. I ran five miles. Not only did I run five miles, they were 9:43 minute miles. Okay I hear my running enthusiast readers cringing. This is hardly a major athletic accomplishment. Noted. But I have come a long way in a month! If I can get my foot issue under control who knows what I'll achieve... To be honest, I'm not setting my sites too high. I don't want to run a marathon. I want to run a half marathon. This summer. With my husband. Who is much, much faster than I am.
But before I get all depressed, I'm celebrating today's achievement and setting my next goal. 7 Miles. Just not tomorrow.
Mama of THREE CRAZY boys. I am a self-described mac & cheese mama, and I make no apologies. Yes they watch Spongebob,have heard me swear (more than anyone should) and eat frozen pizza from time to time. I love my boys, do the best I can and hope that it is good enough.
