I have somewhat figured out the whole mind over matter thing with the running. I finally broke my mile crutch. For a long time I told myself just make it a mile and you are good. The last couple times out, I told myself a little further. Last night I made it the whole 1.4 miles to the baseball field, only stopping to cross roads. Yes, it is only 1.4 miles, but it was big for me, I did have to walk more on the way home, huge hill. Last Thursday I put in 3.5 miles with a break between the miles at the games and errand, but I logged them none the less. It was on the last leg of this when I got the epiphany that yes this is mind over "pain" and I felt I could run a lot farther. I don't see a marathon in the future, but maybe a 5k. Truly, the best part now is when Peanut Butter gets in the stroller and says, "Run Mama, Run!"
