I’m getting back on my feet to some decent mileage after resting and running pretty easy the last two months (and managing to get sick over the holidays pretty bad). I figured this would be a great time to stretch the legs out and get a good effort in while holding a long run or tempo run or something. I had a day off scheduled for Sunday already and was going to run long on the day of the race, so that’s what I did. I went for a nice solid 18 miler (through the snowfall from the day before) on some nice country roads and picked up 3.1 miles halfway through (miles 9 – 12.1) – good for 16:54. What a blast as I knew others were doing the same thing I was all over the world and would share about it. The running community is a great one to be a part of … it really doesn’t matter what time you ran, everybody is out there doing it. Thanks again to Doug for putting it together I look forward to more in the future! Go to my pictures page for more pictures and here is my training log entry with full splits and thoughts about the run.
