On Super Bowl Sunday I headed out and ran my Tackle the Miles Half but decided not to write about that. For me it was a run, it was cold and I finished. Instead I wanted to share how I helped others Tackle their first miles this week. The goal was a 5K to mark the start of a 3 month challenge which will be repeated at the end for comparison. For us runners we were thrilled with the 20 degree weather and moonlight but as a new runners this can be discouraging.
With much concerns of finishing and talk of the difficulty we started but this is what I love about running. We all set out with our own goals and strive to meet those. 1 mile was done and everyone was still smiling, now the halfway point and the big excitement of knowing they had run more then they had remaining. Now 2 miles and some up hill, talk of this is getting tough, but then encouragement to each other that it was almost the finish. A turn and the end in there and everyone accomplished their 5K! I love this, no it was not my run but it was for them and sharing this joy and accomplishment is what running is all about. This is how I helped others Tackle the Miles. I was even happier to hear many say "they kind of liked running." How did you tackle the miles? or Have you helped others tackle the miles?
Congratulations to everyone that completed the first 13 in 2013 virtual race! I’m looking forward to reading our recaps and seeing your photos!
