I’m 10 miles approaching my 60 mile reward.
A few weeks ago I decided I needed something to commemorate my achievements with something special. I’ve always wanted a charm bracelet, but I knew it would be a bit of a splurge so I waited until I truly found a reason to treat myself.
When I began running, I realized this would be a perfect time to celebrate with a little reward when I met my first goal of 30 miles. So on Friday January 16, I decided to go to the Dallas Galleria Pandora jewelry store on my lunch break.
I already had an idea of what I wanted. In fact I had customized my bracelet online and printed out a list. When I arrived at the store, my vision was dazzled by all the shiny charms and snake rope charm bracelets and by the time I walked out there, I had already spent twice the amount of what I was originally wanting to spend.
Did I regret it? Not at all. When I looked down on on my right wrist and saw the sparkle of those pink crystal hearts, knowing I would add a charm for every 30 miles, I knew it was the start of something special.
