Good luck to my fellow runners running the H&H race this weekend! I will see you out there!

I'm super excited about my very first 10k race this Sunday!!! I never in 100 years would have thought that I could run 6.2 miles comfortably!! Since making that commitment myself I have actually ran further then 6 miles. In fact, according to my runkeeper I have run approximately 67 miles and have logged 18 runs - burned over 8,000 calories! That's crazy! But, the commitment has been worth it. I have watch myself go from not being able to finish a mile while running to running 2 miles straight comfortably with a short walk and running another 2 miles. It's kind of amazing what you can condition your body to do when you put your mind to it. I have before tried to attempt running, but I think you have to be ready to do it. I think you have to have a goal and it has to become somewhat of a priority in your life. Trust me, 1000 other things could have taken priority these past 6 weeks in my life. My husband travels and my kids have been sick, you name it. But, I was determined to make it work! Some days I dreaded having to think about getting my run in. Most days I welcomed the change of pace that day. More then anything I am overcome with excitement when I look at how far I have come. It may not be very far in the grand scope of running. But, to me it's like looking across the grand canyon.
