Achievement and a Reward!

I finally managed to run the full distance of my half-marathon on my treadmill! On Saturday morning I handed my daughter to my husband (after I fed her) and said see you in three hours. I then set up my laptop with a good movie and started my run. It took me 2 hours 50 minutes and 55 seconds but I DID IT! So the first time is recorded and I’ve made it through once for sure.

It feels AMAZING to know I can actually make it through the whole distance of my half marathon. Even if I had to walk it out a bit, and because of how early it was had to start out slower than I would have liked, I made it, and now I know for sure I can make it through the whole race. As a reward for my progress and great achievement I finally bought myself the new running shoes that I’ve desperately needed.
