More than a mile
I want to remember today. 16 weeks from now....I want to remember what today felt like. I want to remember that I took 3 weeks off from running thanks to a head cold/double ear infection/Christmas Vacation/Anniversary Cruise....and today hurt. It was cold outside today. Every breath was painful cold air. Yet with every breath of hurt came eager anticipation. Today I might have only ran one mile... but it was the first of many as I (and my sweet friend Katie) started our 16 week half marathon training plan. I've never set a goal this huge that requires this much from my body (well natural childbirth may qualify, but that's a whole different category all it's own)! And this one mile is one that will always hold a special place in my heart!
