Day 176 -- Moraine View State Park


I've been spending a lot of time in State Parks lately. I'm not sure why, other than it's fairly easy to get pictures of them. Here I am visiting with some ducks in Morainve View State Park. They were really quite tame, as you can see.

I ran eight miles today. The first five or six went fine, but I was pushing a bit in the last couple. I was kind of kicking myself about that. How do I expect to run a marathon if eight miles takes so much effort? But then I looked back and realized that this was only the ninth time in my whole life I've run as far as eight miles. The first time was just two months ago, on July 16. And I'm planning to work my way up carefully to 26 miles over the course of a whole year. So I'm not doing too bad.

You never know until you try. Check out the Couch to 5K Running Plan. Three days a week. It might be worth a try....
