OK remember how I hate running? Well, I've been doing it anyway, like 3 times a week.

Last week, Josh let me buy running shoes because when I whined to my mom and sister about my shins hurting when I ran, they told me that was stupid and I just needed better shoes. So, last week Josh let me get some good running shoes. Yesterday was my first chance to use them for a "real" run instead of just walking around the neighborhood.

I went to Liberty Park and ran a half mile before I even wanted to stop! I was so proud of myself! So, I speed walked a little bit, and then ran more, and walked the last bit to cool down. It was so great! I was so proud of myself, and I didn't hate it, and it didn't take that long, and it didn't hurt that bad. Maybe I'll be converted to this whole running scene yet...never can tell.

I do know that I want to be able to run a full mile, and then walk a mile to cool down instead of having to break it up - and I think I'll get there. I know it's sad that my goals are not that hard, but I'm still proud of me, and I'm excited to keep getting better and better.
