Oh, you guys!  I just had to post my little blog this afternoon to let y'all know.  I've been talking to myself this afternoon.  Just kept saying to myself for half an hour the word Unbelievable.  Over and over again.  Do you know what was so unbelievable?  That I ran for 5 minutes today...and did it 4 times.  That's 20 minutes of running!

You have no idea how that thrills me.  I didn't even feel motivated to run today.  I just sort of pushed myself to throw on my running clothes and drive to the park.  I had every intention of only running 3-minute intervals.  But then I got there, and I told myself I was gonna do 5.  And I did.  Almost as if someone else took over my body.  It sure didn't feel like me.

Do you know what this means to a girl who stunk at sports, was always picked last in gym class, was last to finish running laps around the soccer field, and was told to run faster or we'll lose?  I tell ya, it means A LOT. 

I AM an athlete.  I CAN run.  Just watch me...


  1. Good job! I do realize that this was a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just now getting caught up on my feed reader from vacation. I really need to get in the habit of exercise again! In fact, I'm going on a walk tonight (assuming no bad weather). Help me stick to it! I've got to start somewhere...


Thanks for dropping by my blog. I love comments! I'll reply to you here or in an email, unless you have your email option turned off.
