Tonight I accomplished something that I’ve never done before; I ran five miles without stopping or walking! I had a constant, negative self-talk going on in my head, but I pushed through the doubt and just kept running. I geared up with my not-so-sexy reflector vest and water belt. I put Nuun in my water bottles and set out. It was another HOT summer night and I finished in the dark completely drenched in sweat. I had a goal time to finish in an hour and I nailed it on the nose without a minute to spare. Total time: one hour. Pace: 12 min/mile. I’m happy. Life is good.
