3 miles baby!
Ok..I hate to brag, but I'm going to today! My great childhood friend, Cara and I started running together over a month ago. We started running in the evenings but it got so hot we moved to the mornings. She's been driving over to my house at 6:15 and we are running in Forest Hills. We started with a mile and did that for a week or two and we have slowing increased distance. Well, today, we did it! We ran 3 miles..Not 1, not 2, but 3 MILES! I have never run that far and actually it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I did get a cramp in my side and that was slowing me down a bit...I am so proud that we have stuck with it. We are going to run a 5K race in July 10th. It's a FRiday night run down at the river bottom. It's a fundraiser for St. Jude. We are excited!!! My goal is to loose this lingering baby weight but so far it hasn't happened. I hope that it will soon!!!
