Trying to be the best I can be.

Seven miles has not been as tough as it was today for a long time. My legs felt like lead and my mind just was not into it. However, I powered through.

I could complain about how tired I was and how much I wanted to give up for... 6 of the 7 miles, but I won't. It would be too monotonous... and whiny. I'm pretty sure that it would even annoy me.

A few good things about today's run:

  • It is done! Seven more miles in the books. I can't believe how close I am to being at the Chicago Marathon right now. Insane..
  • It was supposed to storm all afternoon, which I was dreading. It didn't. I just heard thunder outside... six hours after my run.. It was nice to have a dry run for once.
  • I passed a few people on my run today. (That hardly happens. Unless the people are walking.) That was in the first few miles, though. I definitely slowed down after mile 4.

Goal: 1000 miles/366 days
So far:  587.27 miles/253 days
To go: 412.73 miles/113 days


  1. That's always a fun feeling to pass people I think. I didn't pass anyone that I know of....Good job on pushing through the run even though you didn't feel like it and it wasn't your fastest time or anything...

    1. You went the long way! There probably weren't many people to pass.
