Almost Three Miles!

Yes my friends, today at the gym, I ran for 2.76 miles without stopping! And it felt great! Early into my run, I wasn't sure I was feeling up for running even a mile. But I powered through and made it over two miles. Then I decided to see how much longer I could make it. It's hard to say what made me run so long.

Was it the kickass celeb sighting? Bradley Cooper is just as good looking in person as he is on the big screen. I can confirm that because as I was only minutes into my run, he was walking down the stairs to leave the gym and my are of focus was right where he was walking. It was easy for me to stare in his direction because, it was my focal point. But it wasn't all weird like "hey, I know you're famous and I'm staring at you." It was more, this is my focal point and you're in my way. It was hard to tell if I was staring at him (I was) or if I was staring through him.

Bradley Cooper or not, I ran almost three friggin' miles! I can't remember the last time I ran that much without stopping. I know for sure it was about 10 years ago.

Last week I quietly realized that I am no longer struggling with plantar fasciitis! This was something that sidelined me from yoga and made life a little more challenging and unpleasant for a long long time. It was a constant reminder that my weight was literally weighing on me too heavily and that it was preventing me from leading an active lifestyle. I don't know how long it's been since I felt pain in my feet upon waking in the morning- it's been a few weeks for sure. But it feels great and is another sign that all my hard work is paying off!
