I was never an athlete of any sort. But yesterday, under beautiful sunny skies along the river I ran TEN MILES! It took me nearly two hours, but physically, I felt pretty good when I was done. And mentally, it's a huge hurdle. I know this sounds like shameless, self-congratulations -- it is to some extent. But it's also to say if I can do it, anyone can.
Four weeks to go before the half marathon in Memphis, and I actually think I'll be able to handle it, no problem.
