No way!!

I went for a run this morning.

Nothing new, I've been trying to run 4 to 5 times a week, before Cameron leaves for the day. The route I've been running is 4.8 k (or 3 miles.)

But last night, I went to Marlo's to scrapbook (lots of fun!) and before I left, we checked out some routes on map my run.

So this morning, I decided to change my route up a bit and try a different one. I ran up the hill and back through the golf course. I couldn't quite remember exactly what we'd mapped out, and I didn't want to run less than my regular route, so I went a little further than what we'd mapped to be on the safe side.

My knee felt really good (lots of prayer there!) and I ran the whole thing. No walking. No stopping.

Now, I'm home and stretched and cooled down and I checked my route again on the site.

It was 7.26 km (or 4.5 miles)!!!!

Well done you!!! I only get as far as putting my running shoes on and then think "nah, too much effort"

Wow, go you! My DH is a runner and I wish I enjoyed it, but no matter how hard I try, I just suffer through it whenever I go, lol. I'm so impressed that you ran that far!

Holy smackers! That's terrific! I wish I had a running partner (aka-someone to haul my butt around town). Have 2 girls down the street who run, but they've never asked if I want to join. So I'm an occasional runner, mostly walker! I see marathons in your future at this rate, girl...and I'm not talkin' the pizza joint! Congrats!!!!
