A New Goal

Running has been going fabulously well. So well, in fact, that it's become somewhat of an addiction. I just can't stop. Over the course of April and May I ran 4 5K races and improved my time by nearly 5 minutes from the first race to the most recent. And I am hungry to shave off even more time.

Now that I completed my goal of running a 5K, it is time to tackle something bigger. A 10K. It's not that the 3.1 miles have become too easy. It's just that I need to set a new goal, to move forward, to challenge myself, to continue growing.

That's fantastic! I am so glad that you are accomplishing something that is just for you. And what a great example for your kids!

Awesome! You know I am behind you 100% on this, well, and also running behind you now, too!

So, do you know where the running store went?

good for you! I am such a clutz I trip just standing still...running would be a disaster!

Not much of a running fiend myself but I'll cheer you on from a safe distance on my couch.
Cheers

Wow, congratulations! I consider it an acheivement to actually *get* to the gym, let alone actually doing some exercise! Glad you have a new goal though - my pregnant wife swims every week, and has just managed the 1/2 mile. She has just set herself a target of completing a mile before the baby is born in December!
