Running is so odd ... My 2 miles today felt way more pleasurable than my 0.5 yesterday. I guess everyday is a new day!! Week 1 done.

Is it odd that this 5k trainer has a 4mile (6.4k) run in the 5th week? Was that an oversight or perhaps a data entry typo by the organizer? I welcome the challenge but was surprised to see it in the run schedule.

So out of shape! Grateful to be in this challenge. I ran back from my polling place today. Two important deeds completed with one errand. Be sure to vote!

Slow start this week but day one of treadmill running has commenced.

Day 1 ✅ My motivation has really slacked off this year with all in-person races turning virtual. Slowly working my way back up to a spring marathon. 🏃🏼‍♀️☀️

Earlier today I jogged a little over 2 miles and it still is not registering with RunBet. I have been doing RunBet for a year now and this is a first.
