When I woke up this morning, I told myself to try the 5-mile loop this evening even if I have to crawl it. Guess what, I did it, I ran/walked that loop for almost over an hour, i think. Not bad considering I've been stuck doing the 3-mile loop since end of February.
During my run a girl approached me and started chatting and asking me about the running club. She told me that she lost 60lbs by running everyday and would like to join our group. I thought to myself,"wow, that's really something!" Now her goal is to do a triathlon.
I guess no matter how small or how big your goal is, the key is to just stick to it. Sooner or later you will eventually accomplish something. Watch out 10K, here I come!
