The President's Fitness Challenge
I ran in an 8k race saturday. Hoshit man, that was tiring, and for the following reasons:|
+I did not run/practice/prepare for it in any way, shape, or form. I got called the night before by a friend to go
+I am a sprinter
+It wasn't on a track, so I couldn't keep track of my progress until I hit a mile marker
+Plenty of old people passed me/finished before me, including an 81 year old man.
But the fact that I actually got out there and ran it, having never ran more than 2 miles nonstop before, and I finished under an hour, makes me happy.
Oh, I'm now at 42% on my progress thingy. Figured I'd share
