This Fat Chick Close To Running A Full Mile

My Saucony running shoes got a workout yesterday as I ran for 14 minutes (twice)! I'm so close to running a full mile.

My Saucony running shoes got a workout yesterday as I ran for 14 minutes (twice)! I’m so close to running a full mile.

During my 6-mile walk I decided to see how far I could run. Boy did I get a surprise. I ran 0.85 miles before stopping for a red light…and air. According to my tracking program, my little run lasted 14.38 minutes. I have no idea if that is slow, fast or just OK.

And I don’t care. I continuously ran for over 14 minutes and nearly hit 1-mile.

That’s awesome in my book!

When I reached mile 4 in my walk, I decided to try running once more. Again, I ran for about 14 minutes but could only go 0.75 miles before my legs decided it was time to stop. I’m calling that a victory too.

I try it again Saturday morning.

I don’t know if I’m able to fully run my upcoming 5K, but I’m going to give it my best shot.
