NSV- Running!

I was super excited so I thought I would share. I don't consider myself a runner at all, for the most part I have always (ALWAYS) hated running except for in sports.

I am training for a half marathon and today was my long run day. I was able to run and keep up with people who were great runners and finished 5 miles in 58 minutes! Super proud and feeling strong.

And the best part- I actually enjoyed it. Ive decided, the more weight I lose, the more I enjoy running- it's a lot easier when I am not carrying around extra weight.

    Congrats!!! Are you training for a particular half marathon? I'm a bit of a half marathon addict myself and 5 miles in 60 minutes is something I still struggle with!
