    I ran 5 miles today.  Doesn't seem like a big deal but I could barely walk 2 months ago.  Celiac Disease is real!

      My whole family ran a 5K with me for mothers day. My tiny 5 year old daughter raced ahead while I stayed with my struggling 8 year old and I found out today that she had a 24 minute PB (we ran/walked it last year) and finished in 36:06! I am so proud. My 8 year old had a harder race but tried really hard and finished in 45min. My 4 year old ran about 3km out of the 5, so next year should make the whole distance Smile  AND the real win - they all want to do it again! 

      One day I decided I wanted to become a runner, so I did.


      Fast is better than long

        I finished a box of cereal and a gallon of milk on the same day.

        2014 Goals: 2500 miles / sub 2 800m / 4:30 mile / sub 16:30 5K

         

        Give a man a fire and he'll be warm the rest of the night;
        Set a man afire and he'll be warm the rest of his life.

        What in the Jehu?

          I finished a box of cereal and a gallon of milk on the same day.

           

          Rounded to 2 decimal points, the shortest distance race that is both an integer number of miles and kilometers is 64.00 miles (103.00 kilometers) long.  I find finishing the box of cereal and gallon of milk at the same time equally awesome as completing a 64 mile race/run...assuming you did it by accident.

           

          And if you planned it by eating an entire box of cereal and chugging an entire gallon of milk?  Well in that case it is extra awesome and I take it as a challenge.

            I got out to run at 615 am on a really windy morning (37 gusting to 48kph). I did the big hill once. It's a victory for today I got out there and that I did a trip up and down that hill as part of my run. (I live in a really flat place and this is the one hill where everyone goes to do hill runs.)

              You are so tough! That's some strong wind to run against. I couldn't do it. Congrats on managing a hill interval in that!

              Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                Today marked the end of my first year of running.  A week and a half after my new marathon PR, I set a new 5K PR.

                 

                Woot.

                 

                I will now pass out in bed.

                "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

                    Not running related, but the wife and I just paid our last college tuition bill this week.  I'm free!

                     

                    My son graduated yesterday.  Yay!  I cannot believe that both of my kids are now college graduates.

                      This is a small one for most, but a big one for me. I have been suffering from depression for 2 years and stopped running because of that and some other life circumstances. I finally have been getting treatment over the past 3 months and have been able to feel like myself again. Today I ran 1/2 mile with my dog. This is the beginning of my training goals, and I feel really proud of myself. Smile

                        Excellent Swyller7. Glad you are feeling better. Good luck with your new program!

                          Yesterday's fast pace has officially become today's easy pace.  What a great feeling! 

                            Got out for a great run today in great weather, 75 low humidity, sunny, light breeze.  Perfect!  I ran very well to, ran one of my best times for 5 miles.  Loved it today!

                              Lived through and passed my purple belt test in Shaolin Kempo (which included a several mile run as the "pre-warmup")!

                                A small feat it is not!

                                Run until the trail runs out.
