Today was my Wellness Wednesday run.
Wellness Wednesday is just me running for no specific time or distance. It is running to simply run and enjoy myself.
I ran more than a 10k today! 6.41 miles.
That distance is longer than any other distance that I have ever ran at one time. I’ve included a map of the route and a picture of me after the run.
I felt pretty good for most of the run. There were a couple times where I could feel my stomach tightening up, but other than that – it was good! Oh yeah, I forgot to tape my nipples (you women don’t have to do that b/c of the extra support you wear, but some guys have too), and I paid for it about ¾ of the way through the run. Ouch! Painful. (TMI?)
Despite that annoying pain…
I now know that I can run the entire 10k.
Oh yeah – did I mention that I ran my longest run to date today in the rain?!
It poured, it sprinkled, it spit, and poured a little more – and I smiled. I smiled because never would I have even imagined that I would be running that far at one time and do it willingly in the rain.
I am so happy that I made this change in my life.
It’s changed everything.
I am living now.
How has the decision to become fit & healthy changed your life?
