Other running blogs do get me inspired to run and do some races. But they leave me feeling discouraged when they talk about slow they are when they run a 7:30 pace. I couldn’t even do that for 1 mile, let alone 26. But what I have to remember is I just started running, no one has the expectation that I will run fast yet. The only expectations I have are made by me, and I think some people are just more natural runners.
So on Saturday when I run my first 5k, I want to set a goal of running it under 35 minutes which is not really that fast. But I think is doable as a new runner. So we will see how it goes.
