I bought some long-sleeved running gear this weekend. I got dressed for my run and I thought I looked really cute. I like looking like an athelete even though I don't always feel like one. Except for today ... I ran 5 miles baby! Seriously, this was the first time I ran that distance. It took me an hour but still ... 5 miles.
I've decided not to sign up for anymore races because I feel so defeated when I don't make the time that I expect to.
I'm still going to run for fitness and maybe sometime in the future I'll run another race. I'm actually feeling kind of motivated since I got through 5 miles today without dying.
