First big milestone! (Read 862 times)

Moondog


    Ran 5 miles today for the first time! Been running for about 8 weeks now. I did it in 44 minutes. This is the first time I actually timed myself. Not that I was trying to beat a certain time but I was just curious how I was going to do. I'm just glad I was able to do it without stopping. Never ever EVER thought I could run 5 miles.

        Good job, Moondog. 5 miles is a big accomplishment. WAY TO GO! Big grin

          That's awesome, Moondog! I agree with the others, 5 miles is a big accomplishment - keep on running!

          When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

            Great job dude! For not having run much... I'd say that's pretty awesome!

            Imminent Catastrophe

              OK, try this: 1. Find a tall object 2. Go 5 miles away 3. Look back at your object and realize... 5 miles is a LONG way! Nice job!

                    Excellent Moondog! I remember when I first started running. Long story that I won't go in to but I know what you're feeling. Enjoy the success, don't be concerned with the time, and think of it as a huge step in the right direction.
                    At the end of the day, be happy with where you are and what you've accomplished.
                      Nice job! Always celebrate your milestones!
                        WOOT! Moondog, great accomplishment! Smile
