Oh, yesterday was gorgeous even here in the Mid-Atlantic. I celebrated with a short run with the dog (I wasn’t wearing the right sports bra to go very far – someone needs to remind me to get a better one before my 10 miler – OUCH!).

It was so nice. I remember running that same route during my initial training sessions and struggling the entire time. I would have to walk and I’d cry a little inside.

Today, it was easy and quick. In fact, I was able to add an extra loop around the lake.  I stopped for the dog to do her thing and a couple other times when I got a little overheated. Even though, I didn’t go as far as I needed too, it sure was nice to have a successful and motivating run.
