Well, I did it...

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I'm keeping my promise to myself that some day I will run a marathon.

I broke my ankle about 3 years ago now, and at that time I made a vow to myself that once I was healed, I would become a runner. And someday a marathon runner. I realized that when I was in crutches, frustrated that I wasn't mobile enough to even walk, let alone carry things, or do laundry, or go to my favorite coffee shop (it has steps up to the inside of the store), my independent spirit was crushed. I realized that I took walking and running for granted! I never will again.

I've since done about four 5K races, and one 10K race. I'm still trying to increase my distance running, and only do up to about 6-7 miles on a weekend morning, but I want to step it up.

Last night, I signed up for my very first Half Marathon!! It's in November, so I've got some time to train for it. I know I can do it!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
