one mile

Thursday, September 09, 2010


I am remembering the beginning.

When one mile was a big deal, a major accomplishment. When one mile meant being sore for several days afterward. When one mile was It, and the thought of going beyond that was just plain crazy.

I feel like I'm there all over again. Tonight, I ran one mile. And it felt strange, like my legs weren't mine. It's like learning to run all over again.

It seems so weird to me that I was the girl in this picture just a little over a week ago.
