|About ten miles in.|
|I was feeling it here! Can't you tell?|
As a freshman in high school I tried out for soccer, but I didn't make the team. The cross country team was willing to take on new members, so I thought I would give it a try. I was never the fastest runner, and I was always ok with. I continued with cross country and track the rest of high school. I never knew what I gift it was not to make the soccer team and to learn the joy of running. It hasn't been easy getting back to running after taking off for over a year, but I knew it would get better, and it has! Exercise soothes my soul.
|I finished in less then 2.5 hours, my goal! It wasn't easy, my legs hurt, but when that happened, I ran with my heart. This run was for me!|
I signed up for another 1/2 marathon in September. I think I developed peroneal tendonitis from increasing my distance too quickly, so my goal is to do more cross training the month of May and pick up more miles come June. We'll see how it goes!
