Friday I was checking out Facebook and my friend Cindy posted that she had just finish her
4 miles! That’s when it happened, the switch was flipped and my mind was made up -The next morning was going to be it for me no matter what. This is why having friends join me on this adventure has been priceless, they help me push through when my running has sucked or when I’m feeling grumpy or lazy about running. Believe me I have a hard time classifying myself as a “runner” there are days that I don’t “feel” like running and I used to think that real runners always felt like running or they always have good runs. The past few months I have learned that it’s not true, real runners sometimes had bad runs, plain and simple. Cindy has been such an awesome cheerleader for me since way back in January when I first posted that I was preparing myself for a 5K (Color Me Rad) she joined us and started running too. We don’t run together literally but we sort-of do I always know when she is running via Facebook and she knows I’m running via my blog and this way we “Like” and post words of encouragement along the way. Very cool stuff!
Saturday morning rolled around and off I went, I kept telling myself today I am making that little turn and taking this running thing in to the next level and I did. AND it felt great! Next time I run a 5K, I will know that I can not only do that but I can do more than that – this coming for a chubby gal who couldn’t run for a minute some 4 months ago?! You got that right!
