I almost didnt run.. almost

Then Muscle Man said he was going upstairs to workout his arms.... So I peeled my overly SLEEPY self off the couch and got on the Treadmill. There is something about knowing I only have to do 1 mile to keep my streak going that makes me feel GREAT..

I started the first .75 barefoot...my toes started to burn so I put on shoes, sped up and finished my run.. Day #9 and going STRONG..

I could have used many excuses not to run and I ALMOST skipped it.

But I ran... 2 miles....

And I am glad I did...

Have an amazing weekend my friends.

Race weekend next weekend!! YIPPEE!!

Have fun at your race! I'm doing the race closer to Seattle next weekend- the 12ks of Christmas (and in elf attire). Should be fun... :)

Only having to run one mile a day certainly does make the pressure easier to deal with. I like how it took a lot of energy to get up and do it, but you ended up doing two! haha Once you start, one just doesn't seem like enough, right?

Keep it up!

great job! My migraine kept me from my mile, but I will restart the streak today. Good job.

Are you trying vibrams? I want a pair for yoga but am uncertain about running barefoot.

I'm used to only about 5 runs a week so making it 9 straight days is a big deal. Knowing I only HAVE to cover 1 mile helps, especially considering how much I hate the treadmill!

Great job on getting up and getting going...if only for a mile or two! :)

Way to keep it going!!

My streak ended on Saturday when I opted for a long bike ride... but I haven't had a complete rest day in nearly a month!
