New milestone - 5 miles!

First things first... my doctor's appointment was very enlightening. I am in fact a very allergic person. It looked like my skin was trying to jump off my back for the grasses!

My insurance isn't the best, so we didn't test everything; this at least was a good indicator that I'm not imagining my symptoms. I was given lots of good medicine, and also an inhaler for suspected exercise-induced asthma. Since that visit, my runs have felt better. It wasn't a cure-all, but I'm feeling better. So much better, in fact, that I ran 5 miles today!

A friend of mine ran the Boulder Marathon today. I'm not sure I want to ever run a marathon, but I'm not ruling it out. However, my long-term goal is to run a half marathon, and the Boulder Half Marathon sounds like a good beginner race to try. So, I've got a year now to see if I can get myself in shape!
