I am finishing up week 3 of my training. It’s really getting into my bones. I don’t dread running. (Unless the Oklahoma winds show up and blast me at 30 mph.) (But I still run.) One of the things that I’ve been focusing on is really pressing myself on my weekday runs. I work hard to beat my mile pace and am being successful little step by little step. I can’t tell you how exhilarating it feels to knock off a full minute off my mile pace. Now, I’m finding myself setting goals. These are short runs…anywhere from 2-3 miles. (There was a day when I thought 1 mile was a long run.) If you are a runner, and I still don’t consider myself a runner, have you found yourself getting more and more excited about running races?
