Sorry, but I have to toot my own horn a bit..

I did a virtual 1/2 marathon this AM.. I've NEVER done a distance like this before. It was a great mental boost just to do something like this... So it's not good to brag, but I just had to. Thanks for listening!! Here are all the details..

It's not bragging it is being happy and excited that you hit one of your goals.

Good for you! The longest I ever did on the treadmill is 8 miles, and I thought that torture! Good luck with your training!

Good for you! Thirteen miles is a long way you should be excited.

Congratulations! Thats an accomplishment! I cant run more than about 4-5 miles on the hamster wheel. The thing is just not friendly to me as a runner.

Funny story.. I was / am actually listening to a book on meditation and part of it talks about embracing things that you dont like. Not saying I've done this, but I've changed my thinking about the dreadmill. I look for positives on it, mostly helping me with my pacing / cadence since it doesnt change speed so you can really zone in on how it feels at a certain pace..
