They All Ran Happily Ever After

Have you heard the story where I woke up EARLY on a Sunday morning and headed out to tackle my long run before the heat?  You haven’t?  Well you can read about it here, here, here and here (to name a few).

What?  Where you dying to hear about how it went today?  Ok ok fine, I’ll give you the abridged version.

Once Upon a Time, there was a girl training for a marathon in the heat of Texas summer.  She set out on a Sunday morning for her weekly long run and it went like this: 

Miles One to Three:  Dark (can’t see) hope I don’t trip AGAIN.

Miles Three to Six:  Ho Hum still on the way out looking forward to the back

Miles Six to Nine:  Took a Gu and refilled my water  bottles

Miles Nine to 12:  Sun came out.  Wanted to kill myself or stab out my eyeballs in lieu of running

Miles 12 to 15: Focused on the task at hand, getting it D.O.N.E. done! 

Here are the splits:

15 miles

Are you missing pictures of me and my friends in our running gear?  Well I didn’t take any pictures today because A) I’m a bad blogger and B) nothing exciting happened.  Here is a montage anyway, because I aim to please.

For one I think your a great blogger even if you don't take pictures of every single run. I also feel like some of my runs are exactly like the others. Probably because I have taken to running the same route and basically going in big circles because it's close to bathrooms and water stations (my sisters house!) I ran my last long run of 8 miles yesterday and I have my 3rd marathon this weekend! Thank goodness because I am DONE with long runs for awhile.

Good luck running in that Texas heat. Makes the heat of Southern Utah feel artic!
