A rockin' run!
This morning I ran my first post Lucy Adelaide half-marathon. It was hard and I am tired, sore and HUNGRY! But, it was amazing! This summer when I first started contemplating training I was struggling to run 5 miles. I wondered how I'd more than double the distance. This training was the best thing for me. There were lots of days I pushed Lulu in the stroller right after I dropped the girls at school or frantically before I picked them up. We ran in the rain, in the heat, and sometimes when neither one of us wanted. All those days we fit in a run when it didn't seem possible, when I wore my running clothes all day "just in case", when we skipped something else even though it sounded more fun, culminated into the best feeling. Today I am stronger mentally and physically than I was just a few months ago. Setting a goal and seeing it through, it's worth it.
