In the first 5 minutes, I was thinking 20 minutes of this is going to be a challenge. But after my body got adjusted to jogging and I got my focus straight, it really wasn't bad. It helped to see the running man who passed and waved almost each time. He was such a steady runner. Although I'm no where in his league, it was nice to push to make sure that when we passed again, I would be further than the last time. Yeah, he was actually running and I was jogging. Let me also clarify by saying, we were going in opposite directions on the trail.
So anyways, I'm one workout past halfway and although I still haven't gotten to a full 2 miles...yet, I'm encouraged to know that there is still time to reach that goal. My longest distance is 1.98 miles to-date. I'll definitely let you know when I make it. And today, I went ahead and sent in my registration to the Women's Only 5K on October 6. No turning back now. :-)

p.s. It's official. I can wash my hair now. So glad! I think my twists were starting to turn to dreadlocs.
Have a Great Weekend,
