great Real Runner Run 2.27 mi 00:30 13:12 pace

Today was my first day as a real runner. This is how I know....
1. I am training for an actual race that I am registered for (LoziLu in July)
2. I ran outside for the first time
3. I know what my actual mileage was....ask me how I know
4. I wore a Garmin on my wrist!
5. And a phone on my bicep with headphones running through my sleeve
6. I was chased by 2 pitbulls in the first 3 minutes
7. I was appauled by the litter and amazed by the nature
8. Turning around at my midpoint and running down hill was an incredible feeling
9. I realized that all dogs are scary when you are alone on the road (as 2 more came after me)
10. I got the chance to cuss the same hill that Jamey and Alex cuss all the time
11. My house has never looked so good from afar
12. I am proud of myself - and Jamey is proud of me!
