So I went running today. I found a cool app on my phone that will tell me how far I ran (using the GPS features) and how long it took. I figured I'd go 2-3 miles, and I could run them in an average of 7-8 minutes.

I ran 0.96 miles in 11 min 41 secs. I had to walk 2 or 3 times. I ran a mile my freshman year in under 6 minutes. It looks like I've got some work to do.

I think Mom would kick the pants off me if we ran together.

that is VERY funny!!
Running IS hard!
If you keep working at it, you will pass me up quickly; but it is never is fun after you finished that hard thing!

wow, I would have guessed you could run a mile in about 8 mins, I wonder if the Utah air effected you a lot.

I think I'm just that far out of shape. The reason I wanted to start running is I felt like I didn't have enough stamina when I played sports.

Hopefully I'll get better quickly.

I did the run again today. 9 min, 41 seconds. I nearly killed myself. The goal is to run for about 20 minutes straight at around a 7-8 minute mile pace.

I think running is great
Especially when the endorphins kick in!
