My First Mile

March 20, 2011

Today, I ran my first mile.

Ever.

What I mean is, for the first time in my life, I ran a whole mile, non-stop.

It was a pretty exciting occasion. We started the run from our gate, went over the top of the loop and just rounded the corner. You can see some more info here.

I started this year working through a podcast called 5k 101 - Couch to 5k in 8 Weeks. It makes it pretty easy to ramp up to being able to run without killing yourself, especially if you've never run before.
