I did it -- and I can't tell you all how good it felt to finish my first 60 minute run. Because honestly I doubted myself on this one. [Thanks to all of you for giving me your vote of confidence. It really did help because I didn't want to come home and not have finished the whole 60 minutes!]
And since I didn't have a running partner this morning, I was left to the thoughts in my own head and Beth's music mix. [Thanks Beth -- fabulous mix!!!]
Minute 5. Crap, it's really cold out here.
Minute 10. Oh so many cute puppies out running with their owners!!
MInute 13. Seriously, how will I ever do 13 miles.
Minute 15. I have to cover this same distance further before I can even turn around!
Minute 22. Where is that next mile marker?!?!
Minute 27. No. Really.
Minute 30. Now, I'm getting somewhere - I'm heading back home!!
Minute 40. I can do this.
Minute 41. I can do this.
Minute 42. I can do this.
Minute 45. Is that the Kessler bridge up ahead? [HUGE smile]
Minute 51. I can't wait to get home and tell people I actually did this.
Minute 55. Maybe I'll be able to run 13 miles afterall. I still have 2 months before the race.
Minute 60. Okay, still glad to be done with that. Until next weekend.
