While many of my multi-talented, multi-sport teammates find it quite easy & enjoyable to turn out a 5k or a marathon, I have not been of this attitude. In fact, I've kind of dreaded running since oh, junior high.
But I got challenged/dared by Kelly to do the Wilderness Run for the Bridges, in exchange for which she'll do a cyclocross race this fall. And I can't resist a good dare.
I started training last week after seeking input from my extensive community of running friends. Start slow, they all said. So I did a 2km run last Tuesday, a 2.5km run Sunday. I felt good through each, and today, I was ready to up the ante on distance.
