Well, not me :) But Katie does :) Seriously though- Katie over at Runs for Cookies turned 31 today. She has an amazing journey that she shared on her blog and it is quite inspiring. I haven't been reading her blog long (only a couple of months) but I can tell just from the little bit I have read that this hasn't been a "cakewalk" for her. She shares her struggles and her victories- and most of all her heart. So, in the midst of this 13 in 2013 journey came this opportunity. I took it :)
Since they were calling for possible power outages (didn't happen here) I ran on the treadmill when I got up this morning (I have no desire to fall on my tush so definitely was not attempting anything outside). I actually went longer but stopped to record my 3.1 time when I hit it. Below is my instagram collage that I put together for my photo record. You can see my time is 37:02- my original goal (for running it outside) was around 30:00 (lofty, I know) but considering I have been dealing with IT band issues I will take the fact that am cutting time off my 5K time. I hadn't had any knee problems for about a week and a half- until today so not sure what was different this time... I am thinking I might take a trip to the running store and see if someone can evaluate my form and give me some pointers. I can't afford a coach at this point in time though. We shall see! I'm technically supposed to do another virtual run tomorrow but I don't think I'll be able to- will have to check on the knee in the a.m. and see.
