I am A Runner

Yesterday was my long run day and it was 8 miles, I have the mini marathon comming up May 2nd so some may say having 8.5 miles being my furthest run yet that im slacking but hey I thinkI am doing just fine, why because I am actually enjoying it now, its not forced training because I have to be at a certain point at a certain time, I do it because I like it, and well because I signed up for the mini and dont want to be lying flat of my face somwhere along the way.

but I did it, i knocked out 8.5 miles yesterday and it was beautiful I even got some sun. it was hard for me to put on my shoes and make it out the door yesterday but once i was out there was no turning back.

My Mr. was very proud of me and happy that I am enjoying running because he knows that for quite some time now i have been wanting to become a runner but in all my trying i give up. well he says that because i did 8.5 miles that it officially makes me an Official Runner. thats Right ya'll I am a RUNNER! wooo hoo

well next weeks long run is 10.5 miles and then the following week is race week. so there you have it I am a officially made it, I am a runner

That is very exciting! I am signed up for the Avon walk in June. I have tried to run in the past and I just feel like I can't breathe. Any tips?
