Me, that’s who! Yes, this girl just JOGGED 1 ENTIRE MILE NON-STOP. I am so happy I can barely control my emotions, the last 1/10th of the mile I was smiling from ear to ear and I did it in 9:59. You guys have no idea what this means to me. I logged onto Spark late today and saw that it was National Run Day so I was like I am going to jog as far and as longs as I can without stopping. Well, so far I have only been able to run .25 miles without stopping so I was going to push myself to do .50 miles, a ˝ mile came and I told myself to keep pushing just to see how far I could go….around .70 miles my calf muscles started to cramp a little but I was like I made it this far and I am going to make it all the way and guess what I DID IT!!!!! I have read so many times that it is mind over matter and I so believe that! I jogged outside up and down my street (I didn’t feel like driving to the track) so I jogged a slight hill a few times. I could not believe that I actually did it so I got in my car not 1 but 2 times and set the trip mileage to zero and drove back and forth up the street to make sure that I really did 1 mile and yep I did! I even had my husband to do it, LOL. I am in disbelief.
I have so many SparkFriends that are runners that I look up to and that have given me advice along the way, I THANK EACH OF YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! I just had to share this news with you all….I feel so good I may just go out and jog another mile. Today I have learned that all things are possible, this (to me) is a dream come true! I will be jogging a 5K in no time.
Believe and achieve, I sure have.
Blessings to all.
