I was oddly disappointed after this run. I mean, on some level, I have accepted the fact that not all runs will be glorious, record-breaking events. But when I had to stop earlier than maybe I had thought I was going to, I was a bit down. It's hard to get excited about running "only" 16 minutes after I did so awesome in Sunday, but I have to remind myself that that's still impressive given my running history AND this is the first time in my life I've been able to consistently run over a mile. I couldn't even do half of that time at this point last year. I'm not even sure I would have even been able to run half a mile at this point last year. Honestly, I'm not even sure I was running at all at this point last year. So when I look at it like that, 16 minutes doesn't seem so bad. And thus concludes my pep talk.
