1st Double digit run ever! (Read 1462 times)

    I just ran 10.54 miles!  Big grin    First time ever in the double digits!  So excited!  Started out thinking I was going to run 6 - 7 miles and it was just such a pretty morning and I was feeling great, so I just kept going.  When I got home, mapped it out and was amazed I ran over 10 miles!  Never thought this would happen.  4 months ago, I could hardly run 90 seconds without stopping!  I guess all the hot summer running has paid off! 



      Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.


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

        Nice!  great job!

          Awesome! Congrats!

            It is a great feeling!  Congrats!

                        Great job! My first 10 miler still stands out as my favorite run ever. Smile

                          Yep, I (dimly) remember that first 10 miler- it's a big deal and quite a milestone. If you used kilometers you would have been in doulble digits weeks  ago.

                            It really helps!  Wait 'til it gets really cool.  I can hardly wait!  Awesome job Kathy!

                            So bittersweet
                            This tragedy
                            Won't ask for absolution;
                            This melody
                            Inside of me
                            Still searches for solution;
                            A twist of faith
                            A change of heart 
                            Cures my infatuation;
                            A broken heart 
                            Provides the spark 
                            For my determination.

                              Congrats!  My first 10 miler is still my all time favorite run ever...one of those moments when everything fell into place and I felt like I could have ran forever. I hope you have many more!
