This morning I ran 6.2 miles in just under an hour! That's a full 10k and I ran it 5 whole minutes faster than I usually do. I don't know what got in to me but I won't question it. I'm thinking that my running goals this year will be to do at least one more 5K in addition to the Susan Komen race in September- plus sometime this summer I will do a 10k. Most gym days I tend to log between 5 1/2 to 6 miles but that's on a flat treadmill. Still, I'm pretty sure that if pressed I could do that distance in a real race. I just might not be as fast as I am on the machine. Now I just have to look up some races, put them on my calendar and stick to it. Sometimes I think back to when I had a hard time running for 2 minutes without stopping and I can't believe I'm talking about hour-long runs. Who knows, maybe a half-marathon is in my future...


  1. Wow, Tracey you are awesome! I totally think a half marathon is in your future :).
    Gosh, I am always still amazed when I can run for 30 minutes straight--I NEVER thought I would be able to do that!

  2. Sometimes how I forget how hard it used to be when I started out. It's still difficult, but just in different ways. Like I wish I could run that long and not look like I'm about to die afterward!

  3. Hey, I'm lucky if I can make it up a flight of stairs without my joints popping! Someday... some glorious day I will join you, and we shall conquer the concrete together! xo.
