A week of Firsts

Image
At my age I didnt think there were so many firsts to still be done...But that was wrong...Hard to believe but this week has been ALL about proving me wrong....I have been training for SO long to run the Princess Half Marathon but I had never run outside.I have done all my training inside on the treadmill.Convincing myself that by raising the incline I was successfully simulating hills and outside terrain..I wasnt too far off from the truth BUT I have now learned outside running is SO beneficial....
My running partner is down for the count waiting on her surgery. Unable to run. SO I have just kept putting off going outside.Its so much easier inside my house. I have air-conditioning, an awesome treadmill with a shelf for water and a wet towel, even a place for my ipad to watch Downton Abbey or Call The Midwife. Its rough but I make do.....
That all changed this last week. We were supposed to do the Mud run In MN...The Viking Mud Run.I had this AWESOME costume put together. A GB Packers…
