I forgot to update that I completed my streak! 14 days in a row and feel pretty great about it all.
This is the longest I have run without rest day. I did it!
- My coach asked what I learned so I thought I would share with you too.
- First and foremost, I learned that I can do it. It wasnt always easy to fit it in and it wasnt always with the best attitude but I did it and that attitude always changed to gratefulness. I accomplished it with no injury and pure joy!
- I also learned that I LOVE RUNNING more than ever. It is such a deep passion for me and consumes me on so many levels. My poor family and employees hear nothing but! I also learned I Love the trails and got my first pair of trail shoes! Cant wait to wear them this weekend!
- I am still working on that voice in my head that I am not cut out of it, that I cant do it, that I will never improve, that its just a waste of time, im not losing weight etc etc etc but I am in a much better place. I know my mental and physical health is so very improved because of running.
I am proud. I am BACK!
So now what .. its time for some 10k training and half training all combined. I run the Foot Traffic Flat on July 4th and Disney Dumbo in August. I am exctied! The medals for Disney were revealed and they are amazing. Kellie is an Alice in Wonderland freak so these are perfect.
Today was hills! I love hills! Maybe its because I have permission to power walk them and run as fast as I can down the hills. Whatever the reason. I KILLED it. It was fun! I was supposed to try to run 500 feet and didnt even come close to that but I have a feeling I will be adding to todays until I do. I cant wait!
It was beautiful this morning and I at the top of my last hill an Eagle circled above my head. I got tears in my eyes and powered down the hill. It was beautiful. It was spiritual. It was perfect! All of it!
and I cant think of a better way to start Mothers Day than with my new friends….
