How Low Can You Go

On The Road Again

>> Tuesday, April 2, 2013

    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!

That's awesome!!! Super proud of you. I can relate. I have a 10 mile race on May 14th. I haven't trained at all. Needless to say it will be more of a walk, run, cry type situation.

Say WHAT!? An 11.6k run!!! Seems to me you've been downplaying your awesomeness all this time. You gets the side-eye treatment. LOL! xo

That's awesome! I need to step up my running once I recover from a torn leg muscle. You're still the person I think about who inspired me to pound the pavement. Keep it up!
