Patting on the back

Okay indulge me for a moment I am going to pat myself on the back.

I just ran 3 1/2 miles...ran not walked...ran. I am so excited that I finally did it. I have been working up steadily and last week I heard about a 5k in our area on July 3. I was wavering as before I have been doing a walk/run combo and it took me about 45 minutes to do 3 1/2 miles. This morning 37 minutes running...I know that is still turtle pace but oh wow the adrenaline is definitely pumping that I can do it. A month ago I was barely walking 1 mile. I understand the runner's high for sure. It is very addicting. Since January I have lost 28 pounds and can run 3 1/2 miles not bad for the first 6 months of a year. Okay I know I am patting myself on the back, I am still on my runner's high...LOL. This high will probably fall about the time I try to get out of bed in the morning as I know I pushed it pretty hard today. I still have a lot of work to do before July 3 5k but tomorrow is the deadline for entry and I am going to go ahead and do it. I would like to be at 33 minutes by then.

Also what does it say about me that I had to blog about how I did before I showered...LOL.
