Day 6, Take 5!
We did it! We made it 5 miles. 13:38/mile https://www.strava.com/activities/324642748
Not without walking but we ran most of it and finished running. We ventured out to more varied terrain, experiencing a couple of hills for the first time. The temperature shot up so at the 3 mile point we were close to home and grabbed our running hats. Based on how we finished I think we can come closer to running the whole distance next weekend. In most situations it proved easier to keep plugging than to start up again from a brief walking break. This was the second longest distance I’ve ever covered and the most in a decade. I dug deep to finish today. I thought about the injustice that keeps people from having what they need and our determination to make a difference in someone’s life. I imagined the thrill of completing this challenge and knowing that the support of others carried me to success. I thought about you and the difference you have already made in my life. Thanks. Water. Hope. Life. Click here to make a difference!
