As in two-for-one special on meeting some goals today.  (Sorry for the let down...no sales going on here.)

Today I not only met goal number one but I also knocked down some of goal number thirteen. 

This is going to be short and sweet. 

I decided to start a training program to be able to run the 5K mentioned previously.  I decided to do the Couch to 5K program.  I was only supposed to run for a minute at a time, followed by a minute and a half of walking. 

I realized as I approached the end of my first running minute that I wasn't nearly tired enough to stop. 

And then I proceeded to run for 13 minutes straight.  For the first time in my whole life I RAN a mile.  I almost cried on the treadmill.

I then walked for 5 minutes, ran for 3 more, and walked for a cool down.  I didn't stretch (which was DUMB! Real dumb people.) so that second round was challenging. 

But 13 minutes, 1 mile later, I learned that I'm doing this for me now.  No one else, but me. 

And you know what, I can do this.  I will succeed.
