hold on a minute for me ......k?
Go Mama go! Go Gallatea go! I did it I did it!! I RAN 5 MILES in less than an HOUR!
Ok ok I am back! Sorry I just had to jump around and sing to myself one more time! I ran 5 miles without stopping to walk today! Not only that but I ran in 58.05 seconds which I know is slow for so many of you but completely Awesome for me! This all happened at around 3:00 this afternoon it is currently 8:00 and I am still on a runners High!
It was a beautiful day almost 55 degrees so I was out there in a short sleeve tee! There were minutes where the sun was beating down on me and I could feel summer just right around the corner! It was a beautiful afternoon!
I had serious moments of doubt during the run and kept looking for an out, at 1.5 mile mark I could have sprinted the half mile home or make a right and keep going and my body and mind took me right! There were moments where I wanted to stop and walk but it was like my legs were not capable of walking!
Funny Moments during this run.....
I was fist pumping my way through each mile mark! I did catch more than one person laughing at me...
There were three to five vultures flying over head the entire hour at one point I decided this is what they were saying.... (in a mafia boss tone)
Vulture 1: Yo yo Joe you see what I see?
Vulture 2: yeah yeah I see a plump little piggy running along (that would be me, the plump one)
Vulture 1: yup that would make a good rump roast....(aww Ican't believe they want Gallatea)
Vulture 2: she does look as if she is gonna drop dead any minute, we will just wait until she does, easy dinner tonight!
ME: SO LONG SUCKKKAAASSS not dropping dead today...
haha seriously this is what goes through my mind when I am running? Birds talking to each other!
Also out of a car window came the yell of .....MILFFFFF which in my eyes is somewhat crude, but at the same time I will totally take the compliment hahaha I know they were a bunch of goofy teenagers but hey gotta take the compliments where I can get them right! They must of totally thought my lime green sports bra was awesome! I chuckled and kept on running!
At one point around the 4 mile mark I saw a dog standing on the side of the sidewalk, I was really starting to drag here.. so i imagined that I had to zooomm past the dog or it would chase me down and eat me!!! bwahahaha Now for some people this might actually be a fear, but for me I absolutely loooovvvee dogs and if I did not have two little girls to think about, I would bring home every stray animal I ever spotted! But anyhow it worked I sped up and past the dog and knew I was in the home stretch....to which a great song came blaring over my Ipod!
Good, good, good,good, vibrations took me into the home stretch and when I hit the 4.5 mile mark and my little stop watch said 53.55 I said there is no way in Hell 6 minutes and a .5 mile are going to get me now and I took off!! People were out all over the place and they were just moving out my way I was clearly on a MISSION!!!
soooo Mission Accomplished, I felt great the whole run, I laughed at myself like I always do and when I jumped off the side walk at the end of my street I felt so accomplished! It was a little less then two months ago and I could not run 1/2 a mile, today I ran 5 without stopping.....go me, go mama I am prouddd of myself!
