0 to Marathon in 2 years!

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 :)

Wow- very nice and super impressive. I know, that looking back has been one of the best parts about the journey! How can you not look back and smile!

Ps- found you on Runners Lounge. Looked for people who used to do TiaRT to become involved in my new Q&A that kind of picks up where they left off. Would love to see you there :)

I read your blog from your #dailymission post on Daily Mile today.

I love love love this chart of yours!!! I'm going to keep one for myself. I'm soooooo terribly slow that sometimes I have tell myself that a pace of 14:00 is better than a pace of nothing.
