WOO HOOOOO!!!!!

I have ONE HUNDRED FOLLOWERS!!!!!

ONE HUNDRED!

Just ONE HUNDRED random people who found me here .... 
Probably 100 people who like to run too.
I have 100 RUNNING FRIENDS! 

I'm thinking about something fun to celebrate this 100 followers milestone. 

******************************

Yesterday (Tuesday), I did a virtual workout run with Aneta over at My Running Bucket.
Early in the morning, she wrote on my Facebook wall. 
See that "under 9:30?"
Yep!

I needed someone to kick my behind when it comes to speed workout.
I was scared to run this.
I don't think I have ever ran more than 1 minute or 2 minutes of sub 9:30.
I procrastinated.
Played with a baby while I was in my running outfit. 
And finally made it to the Y to get this run done.
I hate to disappoint. :) 
I was super-thrilled when I finished it! 
All 2.57 miles in 27 minutes. 
I did a minute warm-up and cool-down. Walk 1 minute for the recovery jogs. And ran REALLY FAST!
It was, in Aneta's words, "walls to the balls hard." 
It was super satisfying too!
