When did two miles get so hard?! I decided that I should lace up my running shoes last Saturday, so I did. My toddler has been sick for a little while so I hadn't run in a while. I decided I would get started easy. I would do two miles.
I have been doing a lot of reading about running. I guess I thought that was a good replacement while I was not running. I read that you should run really hard every so often. I decided the two mile run would be a good time to put a lot of energy into it. I didn't time myself, but what I can say is that I left almost everything I had in that two mile run. It felt good when I got home, sweat pouring down my face. I love to sweat. I feel like I am actually accomplishing something when I sweat.
I need to find another race. I need to get myself signed up and get going. It is the only thing that makes me think I absolutely have to get out there and run. I don't like to waste my money.
My toddler still isn't feeling too well and I am started to think she might have shared. We shall see!
