8 mile

after typing the title of this post, i tried to come up with some witty reference to eminem, but my aching legs are thwarting any attempt at being funny.
i ran eight miles this morning.
y'all, i am trying to be happy about my accomplishment. 
i really am.  yes, eight miles is a long way.  in fact, it is the farthest i have ever run.

i struggled from the moment we started and i never recovered.  i stopped to walk a few times.  i whined the entire time.  i doubted myself.  i felt slow.
i cried in the car.
i know i should feel proud, but i am just not there yet.
maybe once my muscles stop hurting, i will have a little bit of perspective.
so for now, i wait.
i looked to pinterest to see if anything i have pinned could apply to my situation, and viola!!
i knew all of these quotes i hoard would come in handy someday.
