....but 5 miles!! I think I've said in a previous post that Justin gave me a running envelope for Christmas. (He did not do this bc he thinks I need to run) This is supposed to be fun and keep me motivated. If I run a minimum of five days, two or more miles, I get $10 in the envelope. So far I've earned $30! I actually had to get him to raise the ante a little! I can (and do) run more than two miles. When he set that minimum, there were days that's all I would do, because that's all I had to do. Get my drift?! So... he said if I run 20 miles a week, I can earn $15! Now were talking!! ha!
..... anyways~today I took the kiddos to the gym just planning on running my measly two miles. But then I saw a friend and her husband. The gym was packed and the only treadmill available was next to her husband. I am the type that if I am running next to someone I know, or someone just running fast and far... I feel I have to do the same. He said he was running for 40 min so I decided I'd shoot for 4 miles or 40 minutes too. Well by the time I hit 40 minutes, I was at 4.25 miles - what's .75 more??
So, 5 down, 15 to go!! That is totally doable!!
I really enjoyed that run. Now I just need to find that kind of motivation every day :)
