"Ask yourself: 'Can I give more?'. The answer is usually: 'Yes'."

Celebration Time! Yep - a new PR Tonight. You'll never guess what I did........... I ran.......... 6.23 miles. O-M-G! yep for real it happened. I was at my inlaws place and decided to go out for a run, well the loop around the neighborhood is 1.5 miles and I usually run 2 loops, well I knew I wanted to accomplish 3 and told myself I could do it. Well I changed things up some and included running to the entrance of the neighborhood as well. So when I hit the 5 mile mark I knew I could get to 6.2 to have my 1st 10K under my belt! WAHOOOOO!
This was the best run of my life. I felt good, the weather was perfect, mentally i didnt hit the wall. I was, and still am a very happy camper! 1/2 marathon here I come!
