1st SparkPeople Anniversary=Best Run to Date!
Sunday, December 27, 2009
One year ago, I was 30 some pounds heavier and couldn't run more than 50 strides or so before returning to walking. Today I had my fastest 5 1/2 mile run ever! I felt like a runner :) How did this happen? Was it that I was well rested (as far as running goes)? Was it the new running shirt my daughter gave me? Was it the cute young lady who was also on the bike trail that I was trying to keep up with? Those certainly helped. But we all know it was the slow and steady training over the last year that made that fabulous run possible. I've had some hard runs over the last month, and I love that I've finally had two great runs in a row.
Thank you SparkPeople!
