Many the miles!

A month has passed and it is definitely time to check in!  On my last post, I was getting ready to take on 6 miles.  Wait for it... 7.41 MILES!!!!  What a rush! For the first time, I KNEW I was truly going to be able to conquer the half marathon.  Not just saying the words but knowing.

Since then, I've kept up with buddy runs, track nights, and 8 am Saturdays.  With a heavy workload (hence the lack of posts) and lots of travel, I've still managed to get in my mileage. 

Last weekend, work led me to Orlando.  90+ Degrees.  Humidity like you wouldn't believe.  And.... 8.77 MILES!!  On my own!  Nope, I didn't pass Mickey, Donald, or even Shamu.  It was me, all alone with my iPod and the scorching sun.  Came "home" to the hotel to find that 2 hours out there, even at 9am, had made their mark with a bright red burn.  But the burn in my muscles and fire I felt inside made it all worth it.

This Saturday, we start at 7am and are apparently up for a whole new challenge.  I'll keep you posted!
