i have a friend who’s a runner. i mean, like, a half-marathon, run-on-your-wedding-day runner. well, she didn’t run on her wedding day, but i know she wanted to.
i’m a i-can’t-believe-i-made-it-around-the-block-without-stopping runner. and i need heart pounding, fist pumping music. she runs with no music. that is a true runner, y’all.
she told me last night that she wants to form a running group on saturday mornings. EUREKA!!!! just what i’ve been hoping for!
i’m so excited! but i literally need to train this week, so i can keep up. i’m sure i’ll have the shortest legs in the group, and will probably be the oldest, too. hurrumph. so i decided to run my little path this morning (around union station), and not stop, no matter what. i usually run way too fast, and burn out early in. i walk for a while, then run the last 1/3.
well, it was a 20-25 minute run, and i did the whole thing!
MY GOAL: TO RUN THAT EXACT PATH EVERY DAY THIS WEEK.
the other interesting thing ~ i pushed a wrong button on my pandora stations and got the “take 6” station, instead of my usual dubstep or hip hop. so i even got a little church up in that run!! woot woot!
do you have a goal you’d like to share? please comment! we all have to start somewhere, so if your goal is to simply park in the most faraway parking spot at target, i applaud you!!! please tell us!
