I seriously need a race. I think that I have one that I'm going to sign up for in April. Unfortunately, I think that it isn't going to work out for me to find anybody to run with me. However, I'm going to do it anyways. It would be nice if I could find someone to just go to South Bend with me and just hang out the night before the race. I'm feeling a little bit pessimistic about that though. I haven't run a race by myself yet. I guess I haven't been running for that long, though, considering my first race was only in September, which was only a few months ago.
I had another wonderful run tonight on the treadmill. Well, as wonderful as running on the treadmill can be, I guess. I'm really excited that it's going to warm up next week. I'm going to officially start my outdoor run on Tuesday night. I really need to start doing serious training. I'm really excited about it. I'm going to be ahead in all of my classes by early Tuesday so that I'm able to run at least seven and a half miles. I'm sooo excited.
I swear that if it was a year ago, I wouldn't know who I am today. I wouldn't understand who in their right mind could possibly be excited about running seven miles. I would be disturbed. I only ran because I could eat more on Weight Watchers if I was exercising.
Now I'm a running addict. Hmm..
Anyways, yeah, today's run was great. As usual, the first mile sucked.. it always does, no matter what. The next few miles went really really well, though. I didn't start struggling until I got close to mile five. I guess that's impressive in a sense. I haven't run that many miles in a while so I'm glad that I did. I need to keep it up, though. It has been too easy to give up and slack off lately. That's unacceptable if I want to be taken seriously as a runner, which I do. Very much.
Goal: 1000 miles/365 days
So far: 222.03 miles/110 days
To go: 777.97 miles/255 days
