I’m not sure if it was the blinding rain, the new shoes, or the Rocky music I was listening to (my dad made me a running mix with Rocky, the beatles, rolling stones, prince, rascall flats and journey)…..but I just ran 3 miles and didn’t stop!!!!!!! I just started slow and ran and ran and ran….! And, yes, it was pouring outside but it actually felt kind of good because it wasn’t hot for a change. I was only going to do 2 miles today but when I got out there I felt so good that I just didn’t want to stop! Sorry if I’m gushing—I’m just super happy about it because never in my life have I ran for that long without walking…..and it felt good!
