finished my 2nd race, ever (Read 173 times)


    I started running in February.  I've never run before.


    Just finished my first 10k (my first 5k was a month ago in March).


    I always hated running--that was until I discovered motion control/stability shoes and most importantly, my doc gave me an inhaler.  Apparently, I've had exercise induced asthma my whole life--diagnosed just a few months ago.  No wonder I hated running! It's so nice to be able to breathe.


    I'm training for a half marathon in May and submitted my registration today.  I'd like to run it in under 2:40

      Consistently Slow


        Run until the trail runs out.

          Never in my dreams did I think I'd be running more than a mile or so and, the best part: enjoy it.

            Life is short.  Running makes it seem longer.

              Slow and steady wins the....  wait a second! I've been lied to!
