I finally did it (I think). I ran two miles, and I did have to stop at stop lights, but for the most part I ran straight through. This was a monumental run for me for two reasons - the distance, and this was my first run off of a track or treadmill. I actually ran from my house to my in-laws house, which measures 2.7 miles by car, and I did a 5 minute warm-up walk and similar cool-down (hence the 'I think'). It is good to know that I don't need the repetition of the track to keep me going. And the run was very hilly, so it is good to know I can attempt to tackle that as well. The race happens a week from Saturday, so I've still got a ways-to-go!
