Becky's First 5 Miles
I did it. I ran 5 miles. It was really hard. I am turning 30 tomorrow. I don't know why I am writing in such short sentences. But I am. I ran slow. Ok, that's enough...
I was supposed to go running with my SIL. I knew if I wanted to run 5 miles, I needed major support. Unfortunately, she had to cancel last minute. I was all dressed and ready to go, so I just ran. It is pretty awesome to be able to say that I ran 5 miles before I turned 30. It literally felt uphill the entire way, but of course it wasn't. My average pace was 10:30/min/mile, but it's better than nothing. As soon as I got back, I just collapsed on my front lawn and couldn't move for quite a while. But I had a big smile on my face.
However, my toes are KILLING me. Better go take a bath.
