Why yes, yes I do!
So today while Betty and I were on about mile 5.8 (yep those .#s count for a LOT) we were PASSED by a couple of gals who were literally stumbling along. They were at a slow jog pace, but it looked as though one foot in front of the other was all they could manage and they might collapse any minute. (and remember, I said they PASSED us) Betty asks "do we look like that?" and my reply was "yep- or at least that is how I feel".
Now despite this and as humiliating as it was, I also know that no matter HOW we look, we are out there DOING this. Today, we went 7.2 (that .# again) miles. In fact, if I knew exactly how far my car was parked from the beginning and ending point, I would add that in. I am sure it is good for at least another .1!! Every single Saturday we go farther and I am less sore later in the day and the next day than the week before. I am not sure if I will still be able to say the less sore part come 12 mile week, but so far, so good and I have to tell you, I think Betty and I are pretty darn AWESOME!
