Yesterday while I was waiting for my running buddy, Lindsay, I decided to walk around a little bit and enjoy some of the scenery. The sun had started to set and it was gorgeous. Lindsay was running late and I really think this was another opportunity where God was trying to teach me patience. I think it is working. I could have just gone ahead and ran without her, but instead I took a few moments to enjoy the time and in the end got to also enjoy a killer run with my bestie.
Training is going really well so far. I am proud to say that I have not skipped a run since I started training, which is better than I thought I would do. I run two times during the week and do a long run on the weekend. We have gotten up to seven miles on our long runs and this weekend we will be doing eight; over half way there! After yesterday's run I had the realization, I am a runner, and it feels good :)
