Let me tell you a secret, I haven't been running. I have a half marathon at the end of May and I hadn't hit the road since January, I thought about it a lot, but never actually put my feet on the pavement. Then something happened last Thursday. I was on Twitter (@MissHaneefa --> shameless plug) and a friend of mine that I used to run with at the Running Room was talking about going for a run on Good Friday. She then invited me to come with her, after a lot of himming and hawing (is that even how you spell that?) I agreed to join her on a 6K run.
The run was actually pretty good. I was sweating like a mofo, but I was so happy that I was out and I was surprised that I wasn't as out of shape as I thought I was.
You know that saying one good turn deserves another? Well this was one good run deserves another. I went out on Sunday and did a 11.6k run! I am so proud of myself. Along the way I had a few people beeping at me giving me waves and thumbs up. I really felt like a million dollars.
Today I am going to try and tackle some hills.
I am thankful for my friend for getting me out. We are going to continue the tradition and go for a run a Saturday, this week we are doing 14K. Wish me luck!
