I became a runner this weekend. When I started running, I had it in my mind that I could only be a jogger until I could consistently cover a 5K (or greater) distance while running continuously. Finally, I did it. 3 times in a row, no breaks. In fact, I blew past the 5K mark. I am finally a runner.
Actually, I was a runner the moment I turned up the speed on the treadmill and pushed off. But it took me this long to get over my mental hurdles. Truly, it was a nonsense rule I had made up for myself.
Well, whatever. I'm now a runner. I run. How cool is that?!
