I RAN FIVE MILES!

I'm about to flop into bed, but I just wanted to share the great news that I actually ran five miles today. My approach the past couple of weeks has been to run a mile and then walk a block or a minute (or so) and then to start right back up. It's been working really well for me and seems like it gives me the willpower to keep running when I want to stop in the middle of the mile. Knowing I have a break to look forward to, even if it's just for a minute, makes it much easier to keep going.

So with that same approach, I did my first 5-mile run today with Susannah. And the great thing is that the last mile felt the best. I can totally see now how if you start out slowly, you'll have the endurance to keep it up at the end. It was so rad.

More tomorrow!
