I did it. ONE MILE WITHOUT STOPPING! Seriously, this is a huge deal for me. Never in my whole life have I ran a mile without stopping! And in 13 minutes...HECK YEAH!
I took the second mile slow BUT I still cant believe I kept going! 2 miles, 30 minutes, 316 calories, and HUGE BOOST OF CONFIDENCE!
I was telling my mom last night about running the "mile" in middle and high school. I was the queen of getting out of it. I always managed to get sick, forget my bra, and every other excuse in the books! My senior year of high school my gym teacher was flippin' awesome! Ill never forget what he said to me on mile day. "Hey Serina, Did you forget your shoes again?" HECK ya I did (well, not really..but I just rolled with it!). He wrote me a pass to study hall. Now that I look back, it is really embarrassing. But, I hated the way I looked and felt.
But today I did it.
And I can't wait to do it again.
