The Day Elizabeth Ran

That’s right, kiddos. I RAN. It was wonderful.

My Garmin broke. This has been a convenient excuse for a while because I am ALL about the numbers. It was freeing to not use it on this first run. I had few expectations. I ran for a while, I walked for a while, ran for a while, walked for a while. In all I went around 3 miles, most of it walking, but no pressure.

I’m often jealous (envious? or just admiring?) of my coworker who talks about going 6, 7 miles a few times a week. “If only I can go 5 miles,” has always been my goal. I LOVE going further, but 5 miles has always been the standard for me. It seems like a good distance to just up and go. Anyway, I found out she only runs for the cardio benefits and actually stops to walk a decent amount.

If you walk more than half of a half marathon, don’t you still say you ran a half marathon? Yes. If I walk 2 miles and run 1, am I still a runner? Yes. I did both my marathons at a run 1 mile, walk 1 minute schedule.

What do you think? Does running+walking equal running?

What are your plans for the weekend?

Do you run or are you working your way up to running?
