Two blogs in one day?!?!? I can't help myself. I just have to share this.
I am sticking to my 3 weekly runs, and since I couldn't do it yesterday, I needed to do it today. Our morning was pretty full, and then we had lunch. So I intended to give myself time to digest and then go to the Y to run. My Saturdays tend to get away from me a bit... As I walked into the Y, I noticed the sign about their summer hours. They were closing in 30 minutes, and the area with the treadmills was already closed! Ugh!
Oh well, I figured. I will run outside.
A friend mentioned she wanted to start running -- outside. I called her at the last minute and told her I was about to go if she wanted to join me for the first mile around our neighborhood (and then I was continuing on to meet my goal of 5k for today). She said sure! So we did it. We alternated walking, and she did GREAT for her first time out. I was impressed.
It started to rain the last half mile or so -- a light drizzle at first and then pouring rain. She went home and I continued on. Oh boy, was it coming down!!! I kept going. What's a little rain? No problem!
I finished my 5k (actually 3.25 miles)! I am drenched to the bone and about to jump in a nice warm shower. I just had to share. It's so funny how I used to make excuses -- any excuse would do! Now...... It would take something MAJOR MAJOR to deter me. I am DETERMINED!
Thanks for reading and thanks for all the supportive comments on my blogs and teams and status updates lately. I really do appreciate them -- and YOU!
