who knew? Running strengthens an already awesome friendship?

Thursday, August 08, 2013

Tonight I did something I haven't done in a long time! I ran for 8 minutes before stopping to walk!! It felt great! We ended up putting in a little over 4 1/2 miles in 55 minutes, which means I averaged a 12 minute mile. Now don't get me wrong, I know this is by no means a land speed record, but I think it is pretty good. I doubt I will ever be back to running the 6 minute miles I had in my cross country days, but I still feel accomplished. I wouldn't have even attempted a run 6 months ago in February when I truly started this process. It's amazing what 6 months can do. Also, it is amazing what friendship can do! My friend Carrie rode her bike along with me and encouraged me while I ran. I know it wasn't an easy workout for her either, but instead of complaining she continued to encourage me. "you keep going, I'll catch up" those words pushed me harder and further. If she could be putting in the miles and still be positive and supportive, the least I could do is give it my best effort. Definitely proud of both of us tonight!
