Ohh My GOSHHH.. I finally did it. I laced up my shoes and went for it. I ran / walked one mile. My son was playing in the park with my sister and I was able to run around the baseball field, tracking how far and fast I was going with the Nike App on my phone. It felt good. I was all sweaty, out of breath, my breathing was all over the place causing pains in my sides but I did it and I made the mile mark. Now it took me about 17 minutes but that will only improve with time.
OK.. now off to do it all over again..
