Latest Run- I hope this is the beginning of my "training"

I have been trying to decide if I am going to train for a 1/2 marathon to run with my friends in San Antonio, Texas in January.  I have had such a hard time adjusting to the altitude here that I was really doubting if I would be able to do it.  Doubting is I can do it on my own... Do I have the discipline that it will take to train correctly and be able to keep up with my friends.

I had a good trail run with the group that I have joined to run with on Wednesday evenings.  The women in the group are such better runners than me, but joining this group has shown me several different trails in the area.  Gives me something to look forward to AND is my mid week run.  It also makes me realize that I have to run at least two other days during the week to be able to do anything on Wednesday evening!!!

I'm happy to say that I ran 5 miles today!!!  And it didn't almost kill me.  I'm still walking the big hills, but today, I ran the small ones.  I felt so good when it was over!!!!  Dr. T and I took some recycle items to the recycle area in town and on the way home, he stopped and bought me a donut for breakfast.  I have always had my best runs when my friends and I stopped at Krispy Kreme for a donut the night before a run.  I guess this one this morning helped me too!!  That may have to be a regular occurrence.

My goal is to set up a good training calendar!!!  Keep running and adding miles on my Saturday runs!!!  I hope I have the discipline to do this!!!

I don't pretend to be proud of the time, but I am not a fast runner.  I'm just proud that I did it!!!
