Another Running Milestone

On Saturday I was still upset about not being able  to coach, and felt like I needed to run. I also wanted to try this out:
I already have Nike shoes, and really wanted a way to be able to track my distance, calories, pace and time. I was really pleased with my new Nike Plus. I love how it talks to you while you run.

So while I was running on Saturday I finally hit 5 miles! I couldn't believe I ran that far without stopping. It felt so great. I only have one more mile to go before the 10k, and I have 2 months left to train.

When I first started running, I couldn't even make it for a mile. The 3 mile mark was a big victory for me as well. After three months of running I can say that I finally enjoy it. I think.

WOOHOO! Go you! I love, love, love my Nike Plus! I was so bummed when I learned that the paramedics had clipped mine off my sneaker (I don't run with Nikes so I had it in a little sleeve that attached to my laces). One of my colleagues is a big supporter of my running and he got tired of me whining about it and took me to go get a new one last week. I did my first "run" with it and am SO happy to have it back. Isn't it the best?!
