This morning Facebook showed me a memory from 4 years ago. It was a running log – 4 miles at an 11:27 pace. Today I’m proud of that because if I hadn’t started running 5 years ago I wouldn’t be a marathoner today. And if I hadn’t shared that particular run I wouldn’t have celebrated progress today. If you’re reading this and nervous about starting or frustrated with your pace, be happy with your effort…be consistent…be patient and you will see results.
Today I am personally thankful for: my easy run that was really easy (I was worried yesterday’s hike would make my legs sore and tired); a wonderful story that I heard about the kids in yesterday’s Sunday School class; and ending the day with a nice glass of wine.
