New goals

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Well I've decided to start racing. That's right. I'm becoming a runner. Now understand, my body is not designed to run. I have wide hips so my legs don't go straight up and down unless I'm standing with my feet about 12 inches apart, lol. I've never been fast, but I've always been persistent. I hate stopping to walk, even if sometimes people can walk faster than I run when I'm tired, lol! Well, I did a mile yesterday and had my hubby time me. 1.1 miles in 11:18. Not bad for me! When I was at the AF Academy, I had to do 1.5 miles in under 13:34. My best time was 12:13 I think. That's about an 8 minute mile. I'd love to get there again!

I also joined the Virtual Racing SparkTeam. I just missed the race this weekend, but I'll be joining the one two weekends from now. It's just a one-miler, so we'll see how fast I can go!

    Congrats on getting back to running. I think 11.18 time is pretty good considering what mine is. Good luck on you race in two weeks. Let us know how you did.
