Long Run 2

Woooooooh boy! I was pretty worried about the four miles, it seems awful far, and surprisingly, I handled it like a champ. I maintained my 5:1 run/walk ratio, I ran all four miles at about the same pace (mile 1 - 11:30, mile 4 - 10:45), and I am not (as of yet) passed out, dead, or otherwise incapacitated. Running is absolutely awesome sometimes, because well, I can run and feel like I'm a million feet tall. Mmm, what else. Got tested for new running shoes, did that, bought new shoes. I tried on three pairs, and when I tried this pair on, the second it was on my foot, I knew I'd found the one. Hooray new shoes! Just think, I ran over a 5K today, so next week's 5K should be a peice of cake, right? Hell yea it should. I also got to meet some really cool TNT members, chatted with my mentors a bit, and hung out with Tre and his family some. Tre is really awesome. He's an adorable little kid, and his parents are really, really nice. Talk about brave too. His last treatment will *hopefully* be in November. He just turned ten and suffers from ALL. (Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia) He was nice enough to pose with me for a picture. Ignore me looking completely goofy on the side, I just ran four miles. (Not to mention, I typically look pretty goofy)


He's an awesome kid, and really, he and his family serve as a reminder of why I'm doing this in the first place.

Recommended Distance: 4 mi
Completed Distance: 4 mi.
