Eight Miles

Today was a milestone kind of day...I didn't break any records by any stretch of the imagination. I did break one important one and that was my own.

I ran farther than I have ever run before. A whopping 8 miles. Never, never in a million years did I think I would ever be able to utter that sentence. Mind boggling really. But super empowering! I feel unstoppable when I run now. I can take on the world or at least my running path.

I noticed today that the music was not as important. I could only tell you maybe two or three songs that played. I was enjoying the sights, the sounds, the atmosphere of the run. I wasn't concerned with my time or my pace. I was just concerned with being there and completing my goal.

And complete my goal I did and then some. Actually went past my goal. Yay me!

Eight miles down 5.1 to go. Watch out Princesses I'm coming.
