Spring Prairie Fire Half 2017 Week 6

This week felt great for all of my runs. It was a good relief after the rough long run I had last week. I was thinking back to when I trained for my first half, which was actually the spring prairie fire half in 2013, and how far along I have come as a runner since then. I’m not necessarily faster but I’m definitely stronger as a runner. I remember during that training the first time I ever ran 6 miles. It was a cold wet March Saturday and I did it with a group of friends. I remember how accomplished and proud of myself I felt for running that far. I had my 2nd 6 mile run on Saturday for this particular training plan and I felt amazing during it. What a difference a few years makes of consistently running!
