... and second mile.

Yeah. I just had to share. I am so proud of myself and have no one to tell and I literally started crying after mile one I was so proud of myself.

I have a very mild form of cerebral palsy that among other things makes me fatigue very fast and running was just never ever something I did. I didn't do much of anything active to be fair.

Well I decided to to c25k and just finished week 6 day 3. I'm doing a distance version instead of a timed version and so today I had to run 2 miles nonstop. My first ever and second mile. Go me.

    Wow props to you!

    I don't have anything, and struggle to do 1/2 miles straight lol. I usually alternate between running and jogging. Your story totally inspires me to push myself.

    That is SO amazing, and it made me tear up a little for you. I, too, just recently ran my first mile nonstop. I actually did it 2 weeks before my 30th birthday, and I don't have near the health issues that you do. Good for you for pushing through!

    Thanks everyone. I am normally a total quittter. I have tried and quit c25k more than once, so I haven't told anyone what I have been up to.... So you all are the only people I can share it with! But its kinda better that way since so many of you get it.

    I feel like ait punching and playing eye of the tiger.
