My first half marathon isn't until June 13th which is 3 weeks away, and I completed Hal Higdon's Novice Half Marathon training about 3 weeks ago so I've been improvising and adding miles each week that I can. But my longest run has only been 10 miles and I've felt like I was stuck there.
Today's run was about showing myself that I could run more than 10 miles, that I could show up for my Half knowing that I could do it. It was also very cool to think back to this time last year when I could barely run a mile and a 5K seemed like a far off goal. Today's run was a big deal to me.
Here we are on the way to the tow path, and I didn't back into Bill's car this time.
I am the queen of blisters so I haven't really experimented with lots of different socks. I've found some that work pretty well and have stuck with them so I'm rocking boring white Adidas no-shows.
I look so cheerful at 4 miles.
