My best run to date

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I hate running, so what am I doing training for a half marathon? One of my best friends asked me a couple months ago if I would be willing to run one with her. At the time, it sounded like a challenge I was up for. Then, life happened. 2 foster children who desperately needed a Christian home fell into our laps, and my training went by the wayside. Here I am, 3 and a half months later, with only 10 weeks left until the race. I started training 2 weeks ago, walking mostly with a little bit of running thrown in. Today, I am proud to say that I completed 5 miles in 1 hour, 6 minutes, and I ran half of the way. I am completely excited that I was able to go so far, and it makes completing a half marathon much more attainable! It really is amazing what we can accomplish when we put our minds to it.

    Wow! Great job! I tried the couch to 5k this summer, but I've had 2 knee surgeries and I was having a lot of pain, so I stopped. I hope to do a 5k or half marathon one day (even though I hate running). Keep up the great work!
