In just 4 weeks...

Life As I See It [Fitness, Health and Happiness]

I started training for the Chicago marathon just four weeks ago and I can't believe the difference it is already making in my running!


On July 4th I ran a 10K and it included many firsts

  • the first one I ran without my daughter 
  • the first one my husband and son were at the finish line when I crossed 
  • the first one I was actually able to power through the last mile with a faster pace than the entire race!

And that's just a piece of what training does for you, it makes the body work when the mind tells it you can go faster. I  decided I could finish that last mile in 13 minutes or in 10 or under and this time it worked! I had the energy, I had the strength and I had the determination to push myself harder than I've pushed in a race in a long time.

My official finish time: 1:04:28.4

Now granted this was only a 6 mile race... but oh the possibilities
