This is an old picture, but this is what I looked like while running yesterday. I was gleaming with pride. It was a break through run. The longest I have ever done.
So I know that just the other day I blogged about my goal of running a half marathon and I said I was going to increase my mileage soon. I looked up a route on google maps before I left for my run yesterday and I figured that I would do it next week, but while I was running I just felt the urge to go for the longer run. So I tried to remember the route as best I could and I made it home and every once in a while I would start smiling because I was so happy that I was doing something that I never thought I could do. If you had told me a year ago that I would run that long I would have told you you were crazy! When I looked up the map again when I got home I realized it was 5.3 miles! I was so proud of myself. SO there ya go... another update on my training.
