Well, here's a close approximation of what running two itty bitty little miles on Route 219 in West Virginia could look like (cuz this is actually the scenic view of 219):
And here is the sad, sorry result of trying to run two miles on it on Thanksgiving Day:
Mile 1: 11:09
Mile 2: run: 7:18
And I absolutely refuse to whine about it. All I will say is: I just ran out of breath and out of steam. I seem to run out of steam a lot. It's infuriating.
Tomorrow is 4 miles, and I am throwing out the watch (well, not literally). Because, you know what? JEANNE, PAY ATTENTION, BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT:
"Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow."
and while you are at it, READ THIS ONE, TOO, GIRLFRIEND:
"If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul."
- Rabbi Harold Kushner
