Well, a personal record. But isn’t that what records are? Yeah, someone can juggle longer than I can, someone can swallow more glass than I can, but does it really matter in the end? Maybe. They are all in record books to be immortalized while I’m just me. But anyway…
I made it 5 miles today at the gym. I was pushing for that a long time ago and just couldn’t quite make it. Thursay, I pushed myself hard right at the beginning and didn’t let myself slow down until I was already halfway through a 5K. At that point, it wasn’t too hard to make it the remainder of the distance. But I was proud of myself anyway. Now I have to figure out what I’m going to do next. I guess 6.2 miles or whatever a 10K ends up being.
We also carved our pumpkins today. I wasn’t sure what to do as I’ve never been a professional at carving them, but I sort of took my own idea and ran with it. I didn’t use a design or stencil, just went with the craziness that was in my head. And it turned out frightening enough!
