– Margrart Lee Runbeck
This quote was from Saturday and, honestly, it seemed really fitting. See I signed up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I’ve only done 5k’s so far. And until Saturday, that was the farthest I’ve ever run. So needless to say, I’m a little panicked about actually doing a half marathon. My goal is to not be swept and to finish upright 🙂 Sounds like a good goal to me. But how is this quote fitting? Pretty easy actually. I will be very happy to finish, naturally, but it’s the sense of accomplishment I feel for each little step of the way that makes me happy.
Saturday I was technically supposed to run 5 miles, however since I’m about 3 weeks behind and last week was 3 miles, I split the difference and ran 4. As I was going I kept telling myself I could do it, I can do 3 miles so the extra mile is cake. I not only completed the 4 miles, but I did so in 56:17. Not bad if I do say so myself 🙂 My station is the Half Marathon in February and I will be happy with each step I take to get there.
