A few days ago i wrote a post about how i love but also hate running and that most of the time i don't even know why I'm doing this to myself.
I just did my second post graduation run and for the first time i ran 5k! It took 38 minutes so i beat my personal best for distance and duration and almost speed.
I feel elated! The run was really good. After about 20 minutes i felt great and like i wanted to go on forever.
So now i know why I'm doing this to myself, why I'm a runner. Because every so often (whether once a week or once a month) i will have a run like today and it'll all be worth it.
