200 posts and 3 miles

Ooops! I've been watching my darn blog counter for the last few weeks as I slowly got closer and closer to 200 posts. Not that it is really a huge deal, but I was still pretty excited about it.

So, I looked today and alas, my last post was post 200. So, hooray for today's post 201! And thank you all for sticking around with me as I ramble on, share too much, and generally drag you into my crazy life.

On another note, I shared a bit ago about how Brian convinced me to run a 5k, even though I was only able to run about 1.5 miles at a time. Well, I'm proud to report that last night I ran 3.11 miles without stopping! I can't believe I've come this far considering we just decided to go for this last week. Now, I'm not saying I can easily go run 3 miles, or that I'll do it all the time, but I'm happy to know that come race day I'll at least be able to finish the darn thing. The crazy part is that I am actually really enjoying running for the first time in as long as I can remember- I actually crave going out for a run after work. Hopefully someday I'll be able to go for a leisurely 5 or 6 mile jog, but for now I'm perfectly content with my usual 2 mile lap with the occasional extra mile thrown in.

How about you? Any major blogging milestones coming up? Have you overcome a hatred (or fear) of running or something else you thought was impossible?
