Have you ever had that moment when you're in the shower and you've brought your coffee cup with you and you are just in shower heaven? So you go to shampoo your hair. While you're lathering you realize that you have recently cut 9 inches off of your hair and the amount of shampoo you used to use, that was fit to shampoo a small army of cocker spaniels, is no longer necessary and it takes you 10 minutes to rinse the insane amount of shampoo you used out of your now chin length hair. Just me? Excellent.
This morning Sam, Susan, Katie and I dominated 10 miles! And by dominated I mean survived. But it was awesome!
It was my longest distance that I have ran so far. I am pretty stinking proud. If you read this post, it talks a little bit about my weight loss so far, but this is a little different kind of pride.
I am pretty sure if you would have told my 18 year old self that I would EVER run 10 miles in a row, on purpose, I would have laughed at you. Or punched you...I used to be a little scrappy. In fact, in 8th grade I walked the Presidential Fitness mile to "stick it to the man" that no one could make me run. I thought I was punk rock. Turns out I am, but more so because I just ran 10 FREAKIN MILES! I know that there are a lot of ladies out there who can run faster, farther and harder than me, but today, I am so proud of my running accomplishments. I am also getting really excited about the half-marathon in May! I will be running my first half-marathon 3 days before my 26th birthday. Happy Birthday to me! Who would have thought that me, the flute playing, marching band member, choir singing, cookie dough eating, former 220 pound lady, would ever be excited about purposefully running 13.1 miles, in a row.
All My Love,
