Because I am SO Excited...

... I will share my enthusiasm with you!  I ran a 10K (6.2 miles) today and beat my personal record time by A LOT!

It is my longest run to date, although I have done this run a few times before.

It is exciting for three reasons:

1. I KILLED my old 10K time. Last 10K (treadmill): 1 hour, 14 minutes.  Today's 10K (outside): 55 minutes.  DANG, GIRL!

2.  This is the longest distance I have ever run without stopping to walk for a little while.  The last 10K I ran was on the treadmill.  I ran 1.5 miles, walked .5 miles, ran 1.5, walked .5, ran 2.  Today I just went and didn't stop running until I was back on my doorstep.

3. I listened to Jay Z's The Blueprint 3 album in its entirety.

It was awesome!  I feel like this is a big step in my half-marathon training :-)

The half-marathon is about two months away!


  1. Congratulations girl!!! How very exciting. :)

  2. You beat Brian and Alex... they ran 5 miles on Sunday :)...DANG, ARE awesome!!
