How did I do?? My skirt is Sugoi but other than that I am pretty spot on. Soon after the dark photo op I put my coat back on and our foursome set out. We were chilled at the start, time to get out the gloves and ear covers... The night prior to the run Muscle Man and I had our home version of Chinese, egg rolls, pot stickers and egg drop soup with shrimp....my stomach SEIZED soon after dinner..
I did not think much about the tummy issues until mile 3 the BAM!!! What the?? Only 3 miles into a 10 miler and my stomach was doing flip flops, there was not a Honey Bucket along the trail.. URGH!! I was pretty quiet, thankful that the ladies kept my mind off my issues. I know Jen and Tammy pretty well but had never run with Heidi. I LOVE LOVE LOVE meeting new running buddies :)
- I have been worried that I would miss the miles for 83 mile CHALLENGE this month but somehow my efforts have added up.. I sit at 79 miles, leaving just 4 to go :) Think I may wear Garmin while Trick or Treating..
We got to the mid-day point, Heidi and I were a bit behind the others. It was nice to chat and slow a few steps. But I was not good company, I was in PAIN!!! She offered me her tissue, I prayed I would make it without having to fertilize the bushes or ruin my white skirt. Sorry TMI, but that was an honest fear I had. My lungs were great, legs were strong, mind was focused, but my tummy urgled and gurgled all the way home... We got to 10 miles and I RAN into the Honey Bucket. I was sick until about 8PM, not fun at all!!
Moral of the Story? Think before you eat the night before a long run!!
