So I usually spend my Sunday catching up on homework that I’ve neglected all weekend (molecular genetics, I’m talking about you) but yesterday I realized that I wasn’t as far behind as I thought. So before our weekly softball game, I decided to head to the park early to go for a run. I told everyone, my sister, Rob, my roommates, even announced on twitter that I was going to run 4 miles. I didn’t know for sure that I could do it, the furthest I’d ever run was a 5k. I really think announcing it to everyone kept me accountable. The wind was vicious and it was kind of overcast, but I did it! I know that to some people four miles is no big deal, but to me, it’s huge.
Unfortunately, our intramural softball game was cancelled, but Bethany was there at the park and offered to snap a picture to commemorate my achievement. Frizzy hair, sweaty, shiny face… I don’t even care!
