I reached a pretty big goal for me today: I ran a complete mile without stopping.

This is a huge deal to me, because I never ever thought I would get to this point. I’ve always wanted to be a runner, especially long distance, and for some reason I could never get to the mile point. Well, I do know the reason. Mentally, running is very challenging, but it is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I feel really accomplished, and the best part is I’m gonna go even further. I’m gonna keep going and keep improving.

And I have this really amazing guy in my life to thank. If it wasn’t for his motivation, I wouldn’t have gotten this far :)
