"Speed" Mile

I am so not a competitive person.  But since I've started running, it's been fun to compete against myself and see myself progress.  So this morning, just for fun, I decided to do a speed mile and see just how fast I could do it.

Now, I really don't want this blog to be about how fast I can go.  That is not what running is about to me.  This is more the reason of why I run.  I have compared myself to the best before, and it is just plain pointless.

This exercise was mostly for fun and to see how I could do.  It wasn't as fast as I thought I would go, but I did beat my 6th grade time.  Now if only I could go back in time and throw it in my 6th-grade-self's face.  Take that, 11-year-old me! I don't think she/I would have taken it too well.  :)
