2,000km hit.

Exciting news!! I have officially run 2,001km since I started running in January 2010.

Girlies on the run!
If you had told me in 2009 that I would be sitting here today having run 2000+1 km I would have called you CRAZY! But here I am rocking it and working my butt off (literally) and loving it. Discovering this love of running has truly changed my life. I feel happier, less stressed and all around healthier. I never thought I could feel so healthy and happy every day and that I would love the feeling of exercising.

I know I have a lot of work to do in order to get back to where I was pre-baby speed wise but this is a lifelong commitment and journey. Distance is not an issue since I can rock 15km hill runs, but my speed is not there. So while I may not rock my upcoming Horror Hill run as much as I want to, I will have 6 months to train for the Waterloo half and already be running 15km. When I ran the first I trained in 4 months, and the second one I trained for 3 months. So I am hoping with 6 months and starting from a better place I will at least be able to seriously ROCK that race.

My reward for hitting my 2,000km is a new pair of running shoes! So tomorrow I get to go to the Running Room and find myself a new pair of shoes.
