5K!

I did it! I ran 3.1 miles this morning, without stopping. And I feel fantastic!

I can't believe that I started this seven weeks ago today, walking for a minute and running for a minute, for a total of 20 minutes, completely and totally worn out at the end of that time. And now, I am running for more than 40 minutes non-stop.

I never, ever in my life thought I could do this. I never, ever thought I would be a runner.

WOW.

What else does He have in store for me, that I never, ever thought would be possible?

  2. I went for a 2mi run/walk this morning. It was so humid, and when I came back my face was the same color as my bright pink shirt!

  3. Carrie,

    One of the things I've always hated about exercising is that I turn bright red, and stay that way for a long time.

    That doesn't seem to bother me anymore (I'm guessing being older and married has a lot to do with it!). I've also been spending about 10 minutes in centering prayer after I finish the post-run stretching, and by the time I'm in the shower, I'm not AS red as I used to be.

    Great job getting out there in the humidity! Remember to hydrate... don't know about your town, but summer finally made it's (brutal)presence known down here!
