I started the couch to 5K program in August of 2009, ran my first 1/2 marathon in November 2010, my first 10K in January 2011, and NOW, I can call myself a runner.
Because I finally achieved those runner's legs? Unfortunately, no.
Because I got my very first chafing battle wound!
Can you believe I've been
jogging running for a year and just NOW got my first scar?? It totally hurts. I forgot I had it after a shower and rubbed my towel over it and tears started running down my face.
To console myself I ate 4 cookies and a bowl of blue bell mint chocolate chip ice cream. After a week of not eating sugar. And now my tummy hurts. Why aren't cookies and ice cream good for you? Darn it.
I'm stalking my full marathon website so I can register as soon as they post the link. That way I can't back out! It's in November, so what's normal for registration opening??
Looking forward to my 5 mile run tomorrow that just turned into a 10 mile run to burn off all those cookies. My swimsuit is not going to be happy with me.
