I RAN ONE WHOLE MILE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!



As in, like, an entire mile, all at once, without ever stopping or walking or even thinkng "oh my god I'm so tired," lol. I DID IT!!!!!!!

I had hit about 8 minutes straight, and I thought, "I'm just going to keep saying '2 more minutes' to myself and see how that goes." And then I got through my 9th minute, and thought, "well, I'm feeling good, and 2 minutes isn't very long. So I'll just keep going!" And when I got to 11 minutes, well, it would have been stupid to not hold out for the last 20 seconds of the mile. But of course, I like keeping things even, so I finished out the minute.

I ran for 12 minutes at a 5.3mph pace, covering 1.06 miles!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


I'm so so so so proud of myself!!! This had been a goal for so long, and it was SO HARD for many months. And now... I can do it! I've done it!!! I CAN RUN A MILE!!!


WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats!! You'll be out there doing 2 miles in no time! About 7 years ago, I could barely do a mile under 15 minutes (and absolutely HATED running) and I just did my first half marathon this year in 2 hours and 15 minutes. Just keep doing what you're doing.. 2 more minutes..2 more steps.. it adds up!
