Day 38 of 1 Mile A Day Challenge

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Wow! I actually ran at least 1 mile every day since Memorial Day. 1 day to go. Then I will take a rest day or two and be ready for the 10k I signed up for on the 6th.

I have noticed a couple of things about running 1 mile everyday:
1. It was a motivator to make sure I got at least 10 minutes of fun exercise a day.
2. I noticed that I can actually run a mile without having to stop and not feel like I am going to die.
3. I actually feel like a runner now!
4. I like to run!

My granddaughter wants to train a bit harder so she can get her sub30 5k. So this challenge for me has given me a bit more confidence. Found out there is a color run up north and my daughter wants to do it and she'll need to train. It's in 2 weeks. We'll see what happens.

    What a great challenge! It sounds like it is doing good things for you, and getting you to bond more with your daughter and granddaughter.
    Have fun at the 10K and Color Run!
