The reward. The reason. The 2012 goal.
I finish five Millennium Running races and I get the very first Millennium Running Series jacket. I signed up in December for the Shamrock Shuffle ,
the Rifest Five Miler,
the Millennium Mile 5K,
and the NH Ten Miler and Santa Claus Shuffle.
Three down two to go, but my most challenging one is just ahead.
I never thought I could comfortably run five miles, and here it is a year later and I have three under my belt, but ten! Ten, that’s almost a half marathon. That’s probably, at least, two hours of running. It will definitely be a test of my mental limits, but if I thought I could do it back in December than I must’ve known something then that I don’t remember now. I must’ve been much more brave.
Whatever the case, when I finish this series, I am wearing that jacket to bed.
Three miles tonight and some weight training– arms.
Shower, wine, bed.
