0.0 miles - I have energy, but I'm not sure I can really do 2.5 miles.
0.3 miles - ok, I think I've had enough of a walking warm-up, time to run!
0.6 miles - this really isn't as bad as I thought it would be today.
1.0 miles - ankles holding up ok, I can do this
1.1 miles - this is a little boring
1.2 miles - can this mileage counter move any slower?
1.3 miles - one down, 1.5 to go
1.4 miles - I thought I'd gone further since the last time I looked at the mileage counter
1.5 miles - how bad would I feel if I quit right now?
1.6 miles - stop whining and get through it. You're better than this!
1.7 miles - maybe it would help to look at the tv instead of watching mileage counter
1.8 miles - nope, that didn't help. I'm still looking at the mileage counter
1.9 miles - rats, the thunderstorm knocked out the tv altogether
2.1 miles - I've almost run 2 miles!
2.3 miles - two down, I'm nearing the end
2.4 miles - gosh, I have another half a mile to go
2.5 miles - why is this so hard? I just ran 2.25 miles on Saturday...
2.6 miles - if you give up now, you'll be disappointed
2.7 miles - why give up now? It's only .1 more mile
2.8 miles - SUCCESS!!
3.1 miles - (cooldown) Hmmm...I think I could have run 3 miles today. I wonder why I stopped?
