Cinco De Mile-O

In honor of Cinco De Mayo I decided that It would be a great idea to start my own holiday called Cinco De Mile-O. From this day forward on 5th of may I will run 5 miles. Anyone wanting yet another holiday to celebrate on this day is more than welcome to join me!

Todays run was a real struggle for me. It was the first time that I have run outside alone. Normally Mandy joins me when I run outside. I'm not going to lie, it felt really weird running alone. No one there to encourage me, or someone to try and impress with my mad running skills. It was me vs the road. I really had to dig deep to finish the 5 miles toady because the little voices in my head kept saying, oh you are too tired to go that far today... You just ran 6.1 the other day there is no need to over do it. I just had to shut them out and keep running. Its feels amazing to say that I am able to run 5 miles!

On a side note for those of you that were worried about my poor nipples: No blood today, I remembered to use my roll on chafing stuff! I also thought that everyone would like these videos...

5 Miles for the fifth, why didn't I think of that! I did 4.5 today, only half a mile short. That's going to bother me for the rest of the day now. I could run 7 miles for the 7th... or just wait for the beginning of next month to do a match the miles to the date.

Either way, keep it up!
