Today I ran 2-ish miles outside. In the world. As in not on a treadmill or a track. And nobody tripped and/or died.
I didn’t want to do more than 2-ish miles my first time out in the world. I did it in under 30 minutes, so I will have no problem doing a 5k in 45 minutes or less.
People tell me I should feel free to walk a little too, because they are 5k run/walk. But I’m a perfectionist, and I feel if it’s a run, then I want to run. Even if I’m the last one in. Which I won’t be. And if I am, well, whatevs.
