I'm Going Places
Heather had lent me a spare fuel belt, and I tested it out on this run, I should have used all four bottles, but I had one of water, and one of nuun. At mile 8 I sucked down a GU, then we were off again, charging up a hill and back into my neighborhood. I started to get tired at about 11.5 miles. It was after nine o'clock at that point, and although it was getting warm, I got goosebumps, so I slowed down a bit. I thought for a split second about stopping. I realize I have some work to do regarding my mental toughness, when a run starts to get difficult. Instead of giving in to it, I shook the thought out of my head and kept going, and didn't stop until G-Unit read 13 miles. Overall, it was a good run, the photo above is from the route.
MCM Mama passed the "I'm Going Places" award to me, I'm supposed to tell you where I'll be in ten years, then pass it along to ten bloggers. In ten years I will be the mother of two teenagers, one of them will probably have his learners permit so I'll finally have someone else to send to the store if I need to. I will have celebrated over 20 years of marriage. I'll be a marathon finisher, taken a stab at trail running, and will be back to playing tennis on a regular basis. I hope to be happily employed, with 8 years left on my mortgage, and have shown my kids some of the world around us.
