New Milestone

Well, I managed to run 7 miles last night. That is the farthest distance I have run since I started running almost a year ago. Now, if I can string together another 3 of those, I can run a marathon. Yeah, right. I remember when I thought I could never run more than 2 miles and never faster than a 6-minute mile. I proved myself wrong then, but I really can't imagine running 26 miles, much less the 13 that it takes for a half marathon. Come spring, I think I will sign up for a 5K run. I will be great to get a t-shirt and go out there with other runners. The great part is I don't think I would even come in last or anything since I am running an 8-minute mile now. My one fear, though, is that since I don't have the treadmill to pace myself, that I will run too fast or too unevenly and then be on the edge of collapse a mile in.

Congratulations, Jason! I can't imagine running 1 mile, although I could probably walk 7 miles. You need to pick out one of the other runners to help pace yourself. Don't use any Kenyans, however.
