Another thing crossed off my 30 before 30 list.
25. run one mile on my old high school track. [to erase the terrible memories of ‘mile run day’ in gym class.]
did it. kicked that track’s butt.
okay, not really, but I did run one mile.
not the best mile time – I’m sure many of you could walk a mile faster than that – but for me, I’ll take it.
ya see, I’m used to running on my treadmill in my basement, which is very different than running outside (for me at least). My lungs were on fire one lap into it but I pushed through it and can finally kiss those awful 'mile run day' memories goodbye!!!
(on a side note: runner friends, what do I need to do differently while running on the treadmill to be better prepared for my next outside run?)
