I have only ever run in one race and it was a 5k. I did okay for not doing anything to prepare for the race. (I signed up because my friend was putting it on, not because I actually wanted to run 3.1 miles)
But this time will have to different. I can run 3.1 miles on any given day, not super fast, but I don't die from it. 13.1 miles is a whole other story.
13.1 miles is
No one has ever told me I had to. No one has paid me to. No one has ever challenged me to.
But ever since I've started training for the race, my body has embraced running. I wake up thinking about when I'll get to run next. My body is happier and tighter. For the first time in my life, I've enjoyed running.
Please ask me how it's going because we all know I'll need some major accountability :)
