I can do this

This morning, the outdoor temperature was in the 90s.  And so, I had to run on a treadmill in a humid overcrowded fitness center.

Today, the heart rate monitor on the treadmill broke.  And so, I had to keep looking down at my wristwatch for my heart rate.

Today, my Ipod completely shut down on Mile 2.  And so, I had to run without any music...just the hum of that awful black ribbon under my feet.

Today, I ran four miles. And so began, the longest miles I have run in over two years.

Today, I realized that I can do this...
  • if I just keep going
  • if I don't get injured
  • if I can keep my mind in the moment
Four miles down and counting.
