So, I went out for my five-mile run last night (No, that’s not the new record.) My feeling awesome about running, because I rested – continues! I let my legs pick the pace (still not the Record) and went at the speed they wanted to run! In fact,I even told them to slow down, as I questioned my ability to keep it up for 5 miles.. You know what they said?
They couldn’t Bear the idea of running at any other speed!
I was REALLY pleased with the time there! I won’t lie, I had begun to wonder if I could even run an eight minute mile anymore! Seeing the entire run at 7 mph or faster did my heart good!
But, you want to know about the record..
Today is Sept 20th. As of this day, I have run 80.5 miles this month. My previous record in a month was 77.8. That means EVERY run from now until the end of this month sets a new record for me! I promise I will NOT post that in every blog posting, but I also promise you will see it in my monthly recap. 🙂
Did you know that $25.00 provides a hot and healthy dinner for 10 people in a homeless shelter? Even $5.00 provides a meal for 2 people!
