Woohooo!! I'm so freaking pumped right now!!
WHY? Because I just ran EIGHT FREAKING MILES. And I didn't walk at all.
I went out with no expectations of anything, just to go out for a run. The very first song that came on Pandora was fun so I was bouncing a long and I just chose which way to go when I got to a corner. Eventually I kind of had it in my head to run 5. Then i was like well I'm feeling really freaking awesome! I wasn't tired, nothing really hurt, I wasn't out of breath. So I thought to myself, wouldn't it be cool if I could run 7?
I ran about 6 1/2 on Saturday's race so 7 wasn't that much farther, and this was flat not up the side of a mountain. So I just kept going around making a big square around the neighborhood and each time I was kind of close to home I'd estimate that I'd go around maybe one more time and I'd be there.
Well I hit the 7 mile mark and I still had 3/4 of my square I had started doing left so I just ran it and wouldn't you know it, right when I got the corner to turn towards home I hit the 8!!!
NEVER EVER in my life did I EVER think I would run 8 miles and it would feel good. EVER.
This my friends, is what they call AMAZING!!
Oh and it may have started raining on mile 2 or so.
Maybe I should eat 2 donuts every day!
Or not lol.
