Woo Hoo!!! This is a huge accomplishment for me and something I can check off of my "Life List." Words can't describe how great I feel right now. At home I've been running several times a week. My neighborhood is relatively hill free, which was a big shocker for today. The run was awesome, but extremely hilly beyond belief. I was a little surprised by the steep steep hills. Whoa mama. I ran the first mile smoothly, then the gigantic hills came, and came, and came some more ;) My little legs were burning like crazy. Even having to slow it down to almost a walk or power walk, I kept going and running. When I saw the finish line I had a huge rush of adrenaline. Wow! So I kicked it into high gear. Par for the course was that the finish line was at the top of a big hill (go figure ;) I finished at 39:03 and I couldn't be happier with myself. On top of that I won a door prize of a $25 gift card! I can check this goal off the list. It doesn't stop here though! The running continues and I hope this feeling of accomplishment, and happy lungs and body continues too!!!
