    It’s the long runs that scare me.  Not sure what scares me the most, the distance or the fact that I don’t know what to think about the whole time.  No ipod for me.  Made a pact with myself shortly after I started running and haven’t used one since.

    I went for a 6 mile run on Saturday and I was having a slight panic attack.  It had been months since I’d run that far.   It’s so mental.  It’s ALL mental.  The first 2.5 miles of my run I blocked out.  I don’t know how, but I did.  I told myself that my run wouldn’t officially start until I hit the 3 mile mark.  I smiled the whole way.  The whole way.  The 3 mile mark came and went along with a huge, poop-spray truck, giving me the gift of stench.  Whatever.  I kept moving.

    I’m almost 100% sure the weather played a huge part in my fabulous run.  Oh, and my new running pants.  They are bright and happy, along the lines of a chartreuse.  I think that’s in this season, too.  Me loves bright and happy.

    When I hit the home stretch, I was on such a high that I determined to round up my run to 7 miles.

    End result: 7 miles in 1hr 3min

    If I was a Carebear, my chest would be shooting rainbows and happy stars.  It’s been a long time running, since these legs saw 7 miles.

    Silent cheerleaders, what’s new??

    I’m not sure if you have ever wrote this on your blog, but how did you get started running? Did you start by walking or did you just go straight into running?
