Today was also special because it was my first 2 mile run without stopping for a walk break. I haven't done that since the middle of 2011 when I started the full marathon training which eventually led to my IT Band injury. I posted yesterday that I was a bit intimidated, and I was. But then I decided to focus on my mother-in-law, and I spent the run praying for her and for my husband and his sister. For all of the family and friends of my mother-in-law who love her dearly and are standing with her as she deals with this difficult diagnosis.
And the miles just drifted by! Before I knew it I was done! I had done a walking warm-up, so I finished out with some more walking to cool down and complete the 5K distance! It was a great feeling, and so far my legs feel just fine!
