To many these "parts" may just seem like a fun, throw back playlist from my ipod. But, to me, today it is a "whole" lot more (pun intended). It represents 5 miles of running. I've always wanted to run, enjoy it, etc....but never have. This is the first time in my life that I can actually say that I get it....I get why people enjoy it, why they push themselves to go farther and be faster. Wednesday I went out and did 3.2, today it was makes me feel fit, capable, and motivated to push myself even harder next time. Love that! It's kind of like a game to me now. I have to give props to Dawn for helping me figure out the heart rate bit, to Leslie for helping realize it was 99% mental, and to Erin for inspiring me by just picking up and training for a half. It takes a whole village people, it really does! Ha!
