Today’s post is short and sweet.
2 years ago today I went for my first run (okay not first ever but you get the point). I could barely make it a half a mile and I finally got back home with around 1 mile of a walk/run completed. It was hard, I struggled and at the same time it was life changing. I went again each day afterward and completed my first 5k, 6 days later. (I am running this same 5k on the 28th!!)
Since then I have run in the cold, heat, wind, and rain. Made it through sickness and injury. I have completed 14-5k’s, 7-10k’s, 6-Half Marathons, 3 relay events and other random challenges. I have run trails and roads, with friends and without.
The last two years has changed who I am and what I am becoming. I can now run confidently and with purpose. I couldn’t be happier that I made the decision that day to step outside and try to run again. It really has made my life what it is today.
