When I started running 6 months, I hoped that I would get to a point that I could run 20 minutes continuously. I did. I hoped that I could finish the Manasquan midwinter 2 mile beach run without stopping. I did.
I hoped, that with the c25k program, that I could run 30 minutes and run a respectable 5k race time. I did.
I hoped that would feel fit, healthy, and lose 20 pounds with this new, enjoyable habit of running. I did.
I hoped that my long runs would increase to a 13.1 mile half marathon. I did.
Today, I have a follow up appointment with my doctor, and my hope now is that I will be able to put weight on my leg and walk, and eventually rehab myself to run again, and train again, to a half marathon, then to run the Walt Disney World full marathon, and then the Goofy Challenge.
I definitely will.
