As you may know I am running my first 5K at the end of the month. A local one, Sharon Timlin Memorial Race.
When I started running I could not even run the length of my backyard without wanting to stop!
Well, this weekend I ran my first 2 miles without stopping. That is huge for me!
My trick? I ran it on the main road (I have been running in the neighborhood) so I would:
A) Run so I wouldn't get hit by a car
B) Run without stopping because I didn't want anyone to see me stop and think I was a loser!
It worked! I did it!
I have 3 weeks to get that solid 3 miles in. I know I can do it.
The best part? I have realized I love running. I do it with no kids. It is peaceful.
I have also lost some inches on my waist line and fit into some capris I didn't fit in last Spring.
Now that is all the motivation I need!
