I AM RUNNING AGAIN! - Sort of....

I finally did it! A non-stop run!
I had started out with what is called wogging. I would jog for 2 minutes then walk for two minutes. I progressed to a 4 minute jog and a 2 minute walk, then 6 and 2. Now I ran non stop! I am a little sore today, BUT I LOVE IT! How far? How fast? What was the terrain like? I ran 1 WHOLE MILE! whoo! It took me 14 minutes and 58 seconds! The terrain was a slow up hill for a quarter of a mile, then a slow down hill for almost a half a mile, then a huge climb for just under a quarter of a mile, with a small 100 yard descent to the finish line. The temperature was 75 degrees.

A Confession
Alright. I admit it. I actually never use the word "jogging" in relation to myself. Why, because as long as I can remember, I have been a runner. When I would go out an "run", rarely would I be going at a pace that would allow me to hold a reasonable conversation. Just a few short sentences and lost of breathing in between. As you can see from the achievement above, I was not running but jogging. In the future, if you read something about running, don't think to yourself "Oh my gosh! I can't run that! but I could jog that though", keep in mind I mean jogging too.
