When did 4 miles become my easy run? How did this happen? Let's take a road trip back to January 2012, a mere 9 months ago. I was signed up for February's Disney Tangled 5K during Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend yet I never ran outside. I thought the elliptical was training and it was the only thing I ever did.
On the morning prior to heading out for my annual girls cruise with my best friend Keri, I was forced to lace up my sneakers and run 3 miles with her. She was training for the Princess Half Marathon and knew we wouldn't run while on the cruise (although we did do beach yoga, very very very hungover). We got about a half mile into it and I stopped, claiming to have a heart attack. Keri pushed me to keep going, I yelled at her that heart disease runs in my family, she doesn't understand. Smirking, she stated, well you are having a normal conversation with me without panting, you are fine.
