Another 3.5

Tonight I'm running the corporate challenge (3.5 miles) with others from my company for the second year in a row.

Last year this event was my first ever "5k" and it is what helped inspire me to do the half marathon.

I was very disappointed last year when I had to walk almost the whole thing. Having been pretty sick in the month or so before, I didn't have a chance to build up as much as I was planning. Who knows, even if I wasn't sick I might have procrastinated anyway.

I finished last year in about 53 mins.

I'm going to beat this time tonight.

I know I can run for 3.5 miles straight now. I hadn't ever gone that distance last year without a walking break.

I'm actually looking forward to this!

  1. You rock! It's amazing how far you've come in a year. Can't wait to hear your new time!

  2. You are TOTALLY going to beat your time this year. Have fun!

  3. Hope you did great on your race. I love running, too - it helps so much to keep the stress level down!

    I saw on your sidebar that you had a really huge cyst years ago. I don't often come across other people who've had them this big. I had one that was 10" and over 3 pounds.
