A Mile A Day: Day 3

So on our nations birthday a few days ago, I decided to challenge myself. The challenge was to run a mile every day for a month. The main question I asked was, "why in the world would I want to run a mile every single day for a month, I hate running?" In that very statement, I answered my own question: I HATE RUNNING. But even though I hate running, I can run a mile. So this blog is going to not only be an accountability tool for myself, but also a way for me to hopefully encourage anyone out there who may stumble across these posts.

I've tried to figure out what I'm going to include in this blog daily, but I think that would take away from the spontaneity of the blog post. But 3 three things will remain constant:

1. A recap of the day's run and how I felt. (My hope is that I will see progress along the way)

2. The Pandora Station or songs listened to during my run. (Because who doesn't love music)

3. A verse from the Bible. (I've also decided on July 4th to start reading a chapter a day in the Bible with my girlfriend Katie starting with the New Testament and I want to be able to use this blog as a way for me to post one verse I thought stood out to me throughout my daily readings)

My posts won't be this long normally, but since it's the first I figured I would set a foundation for what my hopes of this blog becoming. So here are the 3 things I promised I would have in each post. Enjoy!

Day Three

There has been a common goal the last three days when I've run each of my miles, HOT. It has easily been over 90 degrees each day that I have run so today was no different. I have run the same loop around my neighborhood the past three days, really just to get into a routine of running and to get my body used to running multiple days in a row. (I'm going to be doing this for at least 31 days straight, so I gotta get used to it) I was pleasantly surprised how smooth the run went even though I was sore right before I started and sat in an hour and a half of traffic before the run as well. But overall, it was a hot one and I don't expect things to cool down anytime soon. Day THREE is in the Books, and I'm still smiling.

Pandora Station: Celtic Music Station

Daily Verse: Matthew 3:16-17 "After Jesus was baptized, He went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on Him. And there came a voice from heaven: This is My beloved Son. I take delight in Him!"

Thanks for stopping by, I'll talk to y'all tomorrow!
