Like Lightning

I know, I'm the turtle. I get it.

I'm totally slow. And that used to be okay with me.

But I've been finding myself longing to be faster.

Comparing myself to other runners.

I don't put in as much work as I should. I know.

But I really want to be able to say that I actually run. Instead of "well, kind of."

So Sunday, I ran 2.5 miles at about an 11 minute mile pace. Okay. Well, awesome for me. Not exactly sprinting. But way faster than I used to be.

And then I remembered. My Nike+ logs your fastest times. What does mine say?

Sub 11 minute mile? I'll take it, even if Nike+ isn't always right. And I haven't run a 5K as of late, so that time is from a while ago. And my Nike+ malfunctioned during my 10K, so no time is even recorded. Like I said, it doesn't always work right.

Maybe one day I'll be able to run a 10 minute mile. Like when I've lost another 20 or so pounds. We'll see!!!

I think an 11 minute mile is awesome but I understand wanting to do better. Good luck and hope you hit your goal soon.

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. =)
