I’m happy to say that I finally achieved my goal of running over 5 miles straight!
A couple nights ago, I ran from Lower East Side to Upper East Side. There were a few inclines, but I toughed it out. Feels really good 🙂
I’m starting to warm up to running. I just realized: isn’t it a great way to sight-see? I’ve lived here almost 2 years, yet it was during my run that I first saw the United Nations campus! I would’ve stopped to take pics, but I was on a roll. 😉
After my run, I decided to make my running endeavor official by getting my first pair of actual running shorts!
Tomorrow, I’ll be participating in the Girls on the Run 5k. Girls on the Run is an organization that encourages girls 8-13 to be joyful, healthy and confident through a health and wellness program that incorporates running. What a great organization! They have a 5k every year to celebrate, and I’ll be paired with a student as a Running Buddy to help provide support throughout the race. Really excited.
Have a great Saturday!
