The last mile had a hill that I had to walk up - it was brutal! Here it is:
The race was about 4 miles, but my friend Laurie and I ran 6 more afterwards for a total of 10 miles today. I'm supposed to be doing 16 miles this weekend for the marathon training, but I wanted to do an 8 mile training trail run tomorrow morning for the upcoming Arizona Trail race, which will be held on February 3rd. So, I'll get in 18, but not all at one time. I'll be doing a 16 miler next week, and starting in February (after the Arizona Trail race) I'll be doing 18-20 mile training runs. I love the longer runs - I think I was built for distance, not speed! I registered last week for the marathon I am training for - the Bataan Memorial Death March Marathon (26.2 miles), which will be on March 30th in White Sands, New Mexico.
All done with the run. Time to go home and eat. :)
