I ran a 10 K on my treadmill!!!!

I was going to try to do a long run today of 5 miles.  I wasn't in the mood at all and had been putting it off until after lunch time.  Well, I got on that treadmill, made it to the 5 K mark, then the 4 mile mark.  When I got to the 5 mile mark I called my DH in the workout room and asked him if he thought I should just go for it.  He told me yes.  So I did!!!  I finished the 6.2 miles in 63:4o!!!!  I have done one other 10K on my treadmill and I finished that in 67 minutes.  I was in total shock that I did it!!  Maybe I will be able to run a marathon next year after all.  I just can't imagine it now but it just takes baby steps.  :)


  1. AWESOME. I have been following you from the beginning and your journey helps me to know that I can too. Keep up the great work.

  2. If a 10K is a baby step, I can't wait to see what you do when you leap! You've made the most amazing progress. You've been an inspiration to so many. And you've done it all with a smile and sense of humor. Well done, Robyn.
