Rugby, Doesn't that just make your chest swell with pride? To think what you have accomplished in one year?
I wish I had made note of when I started to run successfully. I had so many false starts...I've been pretty consistent since my second daughter was a freshman in high school and took up cross country. It is the only sport where the parents have to be in shape too if you want to see your kid run. So that would be fall of 1996.
I still marvel when I cross a certain dam in our neighborhood. That was always my marker for if I could finish the 2 mile circuit that was my goal run when I started. Now it seems easy on most days but I think of it every time I go across it.
Enjoy the gift. Not everyone has the ability or stamina.
4/3/05. First 1 mile. First 3.1 miles. Took about an hour. But I didn't stop once. Huge milestone.
Family Forced rest day for me. Supposed to be 7mile run w/ speed intervals and I'm pushing it to tommorow. Walked in a parade, going to a festival, and gonig to fireworks. I will likely get about 8-10miles of walking in, have 6-7 so far
