Good morning everyone! I am so excited because today is my
This day, 3 years ago I took that first step. On my treadmill at home. Because, well, because it was December in Iowa. I have come so far since then! Now I dread the treadmill (even though that’s where I’ll be running today since the wind chill is dangerously low) and run most of my runs outside.
I have grown so much in my running too. Knowing how to listen to my body, learning it’s ok to miss a run here and there, it’s not going to hurt me.
In three years I went from just starting out, to completing 6 half marathons, countless 5Ks, 2 10Ks (not my favorite distance) and making so many new friends. In this upcoming year, I will be training and running my first ever Marathon. When I took that first step, I would have thought there’d be NO WAY I’d do a marathon! Life is crazy right?
God has really shown me so much in these three years, He has also helped me out in all of this. I couldn’t do it without Him.
It’s been a great ride and I can’t wait to see where running takes me in the next 3 years!
