My first Long Run of Dallas Rock N Roll Training. It was at this stage of training 3 years ago that I fell and busted my knee. A little closer to March, but I had just run my 8 mile training run..... on the treadmill. Wow, I remember the days when I did all my training on the treadmill because I was too scared to run outside alone.
Scared to fall
Scared of animals
Scared of attackers
Scared of people
Just plain scared.
All my spark peeps had faith in me way before I did. Y'all knew all along that I had this in me! Thank you for your positive force!
Time and many more miles has changed a lot of things....
Sure I'm still scared... and yes I did fall and injure myself seriously. But I keep lacing up and heading out the door to log miles and smiles with my Sole Sisters!
If you aren't part of a running club I encourage you to be a part of
