The Ups and Downs of Running
Believe it or not, it has been almost 10 months since I have started running. Over the past few weeks, I have been working on progressing (going faster and going longer.) Today was another of those going longer days. I am hoping to be up to seven miles before I go out to Arizona to serve with the FLAME Gives Back missions team. I’ll be getting plenty of exercise there and with the heat, I won’t need to run — besides no one would want to smell me and we won’t have showers.
Today I went 6.5 miles for the first time. My legs are really feeling it. I don’t have a time because my watch bit the dust. I create quite a bit of sweat while running and this watch wasn’t up to the task. My best guess was that it was in the hour and fifteen to twenty minute range. Pressing On!
