I skipped running yesterday-had a major issue to deal with. Today I had plans to run with a buddy, but had to cut it short due to a meeting. Better something than nothing. 🙂
It was an easy mile. Maybe it was easy because I knew it was going to be a short run. Maybe it was easy because I was running with a buddy. Or just maybe it was easy because I am now a better runner! 🙂 I think I’ll go with the 3rd one!
Now the 1st half mile is pure torture. Every time. It almost kills me. But then after I cross over into the 2nd mile it gets a little easier. And this past Sunday when I ran 6.5 miles the 4th, 5th, and 6th miles were delightful. Really. 🙂
Just that itty bitty mile today made me feel better. And tomorrow my running buddy and I are planning a much longer run. Not sure how long but she has a 5k this Saturday so maybe 3.5 or 4 miles????
Here’s some inspiration to my fellow runners.
Hope I got a laugh out of you! 🙂

Well, I have decided to create yet another blog to chronicle my days from being a couch potato to being fit. Now don’t get me wrong, I am NOT going to give up my couch, my throne! Because that is where I tweet, blog, plan, read, write, talk, etc.
But, I am going to start moving everyday. You see, my goal this year is to run a 5k. Not win a 5k. Run and finish a 5k. My husband doesn’t think I can do it within a year. Or maybe he just doesn’t think that I will do it. So, in order to
prove him wrong become a fit person instead of heading toward obesity (which is where my doctor says I’m heading with my age and the pounds that I put on each year), I am going to run a 5k. Sometime this year.
Here is an inspirational video that I found that makes me believe I can do this. I will do this.
This guy is unbelievable. Well, I believe him. I mean he rocks. Watch this video and then tell me you didn’t tear up even once. 🙂
Stay tuned for my daily struggles to become fit and run a 5k in the year of 2012!!!
