I can honestly say I had fun running today! I don't know what happened, but something clicked and I was smiling through almost the whole thing! Yay! I really appreciated the encouragement on my blog this week also.
I do have an important question though. What can I do to make the first 2/3 of my first mile easier? During it I struggle to breathe, I lose my focus, and I struggle to keep up my pace. By the time I hit 1 mile I am ready to go and I feel like I could go a long ways. Hmmm. Any advice fellow runners?
After a fun night watching Up with our great friends, I am enjoying just relaxing. I think I need to meditate and prepare for my "long" run tomorrow. I know it is only 4 miles, but that is the farthest I have ever run/walked! I will admit it... I'm scared! I just have to start telling myself now, "You can do it! You can do it!"
