5K Training: Week 2 (17.20 miles)

I finally got over my cold in the beginning of the week and was able to complete all of my runs scheduled for week 2. It feels so good to be able to run and train again! Running is such a huge part of my life and who I am. After three major injuries and only being able to run sporadically the last 2+ years, I’m not taking any miles for granted.
