No matter how many times I run, or if it’s a short or long run, or if I’m going slow, or fast, none of it matters. That first frickin mile is torture. I feel like I can’t breathe, my lungs burn and my joints ache, and it’s a struggle to keep even a slow pace. Then, all of a sudden, it lifts and I feel better. So for those of you new to running – try to push past that first mile! I promise it does get better!
Running has been great this week. I’ve gotten a couple of three milers in, which has been my goal. Ideally I’ll do two to three a week. This coming week will be tough due to my three nights on, but I’ll try my best. First up is the reservoir in the morning.
This weekend was really great. I had a great day of lessons on Saturday in some truly beautiful weather. Today was even warmer and luckily we were able to enjoy it at a baseball game with some friends! Harry had a blast and ran all over the stadium. It was even a bit hot for the beginning of the game!
I hope everyone has a nice week! I just opened our tee shirt order again, and the site will take orders for one more week. If you’re interested in getting a Harry’s Heroes shirt, now’s your chance!
