Ten miles

I was never an athlete of any sort. But yesterday, under beautiful sunny skies along the river I ran TEN MILES! It took me nearly two hours, but physically, I felt pretty good when I was done. And mentally, it's a huge hurdle. I know this sounds like shameless, self-congratulations -- it is to some extent. But it's also to say if I can do it, anyone can.

Four weeks to go before the half marathon in Memphis, and I actually think I'll be able to handle it, no problem.

Well done! You'll have no problem with the 1/2 marathon. I finished 16 miles yesterday. It was a pain in the butt, literally. I'm sore today. Here's a hint: if you skip two runs during the week, don't expect your long weekend run to go well. Cheers. :)

Good job! I guess you escaped the wrath of those crooked sidewalks...

Thank for reminding me Val -- if there's anyone from the city reading this, thanks tons for the newly paved riverfront trail! It's fabulous.
