I kind of feel like I've graduated in a way.
I used to carefully put together playlists for my iPod.
Playlists to get me through my runs. Give me power when I needed it.
Last week however I experienced a shift.
On my training plan I had 3.5 miles.
Not 6 months ago 3.1 miles was something I worked hard to get to.
I needed those songs to help push me over the walls.
But now .. 3.5 miles is .. dare I say easy?
I didn't need Lady GaGa to push me.
So in a way I feel like I have graduated.
Now I am using my "Chill" playlist to put my mind in a place of relaxation.
Enjoy those miles.
So yesterday I ran my long run with some:
Jack and Ingrid
Just a few of my close friends.
It was nice.
It is a reminder that I'm a runner.
And I don't feel weird calling myself that.
