I did it!!! I met my first objective towards reaching my running goal: To run 1/2 a mile without stopping. After a month of gradually building up my endurance, I am finally at the point where I can follow the 3 month plan from a book I am reading. Not bad for someone who has never ran before!
Another surprise this evening as I was out running. I decided to go a different route than my usual. I usually run up and down my street, but last week I decided to drive around my neighborhood and clock the distance in another direction. As I was out running, I found some other runners in my neighborhood.
Now on to my next objective to run 1 mile without stopping.
