Between the above stats and the warm up run, I put in just a little over 14 miles with the track club today. I wasn't planning to go that far today since I hadn't put in a long run since the Sue Krenn 15K earlier this month. I suppose the conditions were just right to go the whole way. Perfect weather, a slower pace, the ankle not hurting, and great conversation made for a good run. I deliberately went slower so I could complete what ever distance I was doing. I also ran with AKA Alice, and running with her was a boost to my running. We ran at a talking pace and ran to the halfway point, about 7 miles, which was also the second hydration stop. I lost her after that, but ended up running with a woman who was keeping track of pace with her Garmin, and she helped to keep me from going faster, which I wanted to avoid. I think the slower pace helped me to not feel so thrashed after this run, however... TOTM arrived and that did me in more than the run. Yay me.
AKA Alice remembered to bring a camera!
This soooooo does not suck!
I didn't make it into the Nike Women's Half Marathon, I'm not so miffed about it like I was last year, however, it's still kind of disturbing to see my name next to "not selected." I have a few other options to ponder.
