1st post half-marathon run
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
i rested for a few days after the half-marathon. yesterday, the air was too unhealthy to run. it was marginal this morning, so i went before it got worse. did 2.45 miles in 28 minutes. i've been training for distance, so i haven't pushed the speed. today i decided to go faster. i've never run that fast in my life!
i've shocked and impressed myself. less than 11-1/2 minutes/mile. just, wow!
when i started running, i did it just to prove something to myself. somewhere along the way it morphed from being a thing to conquer to being something i love. who knew? all you fellow runners did!
yay for a changed life.
