Day 38 of 1 Mile A Day Challenge

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Wow! I actually ran at least 1 mile every day since Memorial Day. 1 day to go. Then I will take a rest day or two and be ready for the 10k I signed up for on the 6th.

I have noticed a couple of things about running 1 mile everyday:
1. It was a motivator to make sure I got at least 10 minutes of fun exercise a day.
2. I noticed that I can actually run a mile without having to stop and not feel like I am going to die.
3. I actually feel like a runner now!
4. I like to run!

My granddaughter wants to train a bit harder so she can get her sub30 5k. So this challenge for me has given me a bit more confidence. Found out there is a color run up north and my daughter wants to do it and she'll need to train. It's in 2 weeks. We'll see what happens.

    What a great challenge! It sounds like it is doing good things for you, and getting you to bond more with your daughter and granddaughter.
Have fun at the 10K and Color Run!

Race Day today!

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I signed up for this race because it will be held in the town where my grandchildren's "other" grandma lives. She has not yet had the opportunity to watch her grandchildren race. It should be a fun day!

    It was a great day. Sunny, not too hot. The kids had a blast after the race at the county fair with their grandparents. I enjoyed the fair with my daughter.

Oh, my time was 32:47 and my granddaughter's was 33:41.

Runner's World Mile a day Challenge

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Today is day 30 and I have run at least 1 mile every day. I think running every day is taking its toll on me or it could be because of the gardening and yard work that I am doing. But I sure do enjoy getting that mile run done before I start my chores.

Stormy Weather

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Due to recent storm activity, I was out of internet service for a couple of days. Fortunately, the power was still active here. But three days without the internet!? It is now back at a super slow speed.

My family in another town was without electricity for three days. My mom and day were thankful for that city water connection. She commented on she did not living like the "good ol, days".
