What the...?!

Holy Spicoli!

Had you told me even two months ago that I would be running at 3.5 MPH for 15 minutes straight, I'd have laughed at you.  I'd have rolled my eyes and told you in my best 15-year-old accent "Shut UP."

But I did it tonight.

I know that a 15-minute-ish mile isn't a big deal for anyone who can actually run.  But there's the thing.  I CAN'T run.  I DON'T run.  I have never in my entire life run a mile.  Ever.  Not even kidding.  In gym classes, I didn't run anything - I walked the mile.  Difiantly.  Unabashedly.  Smiling, I'm sure.  Probably to the chagrin of my Phys Ed teachers.  Sorry, guys.  But, they get theirs.  I did it tonight (well, almost did it tonight...whatever.  Close enough).

The stinkin' crazy thing is that I wasn't even dying in the end.  I could maybe have finished that whole mile, had I had a mind to.

It's interesting to feel like this thing that I've never been able to hold onto is something that I might be able to finally get a grip on.  I CAN WORK OUT.  And, I'll do ya one better.  I can ENJOY IT.  Who knew??!!?  Man, I'm so stoked to keep this up.  I just feel awesome.  I have a feeling that it can only get better from here on out - as I'm able to do more and more and run for longer and longer.

I hope you guys are ready for this section of the ride, 'cause I am!!


  1. Bekah I am so unbelieveably proud of you, and really it makes me want to try harder with my diet, because I have the work out part down. You are such a motivation to me! And I can't wait for us to work out together this summer!!!

  2. Holy cats. *maybe* we'll go for a little run together?! Probably not, but it could totally happen someday.

    Keep it up, girlie!

  3. Seester I'm so proud of you!!! And I'm sure Mrs. Curtin and Mr. Morrin are as well ha. Keep up all your hard good work!
