Looking back through my logs and reflecting on my journey so far (oh no, it's far from over!), I realized that I basically went from 0 to marathon in just under 2 years. This blows my mind. I never thought I could do this.
I started my journey to a better me in February 2008. I walked my first 2 mile race at the end of March, and started running with the Couch to 5k program during the first week in April. I've had some ups and downs, but I've not stop running yet and hope I never do : ) In the past 2 years, I've run over 30 races including countless 5Ks, 2 5 milers, 3 10Ks, 1 15k, 3 half marathons, and 1 full marathon.
I've tracked every race and milestone run in a handy spreadsheet, along with my pace, and it's amazing to see how far I've come. Take a look at the link below, and if you ever get frustrated see that it didn't happen over night but that a little patience and perseverance eventually pays off :)
