It was lightly drizzling when we set out...the drizzle turned to a rain which continued the entire run. I was SOGGY!! The 8 miles with Heidi sped by quickly, I hopped over large puddles and we cheered on the other Fleet Feet Runners. It was great.. I felt amazing, we plugged along at a good clip and before we knew it I dropped her off..
ALL BY MYSELF:
-My Feet hurt, my right heel really hurt, it is time for NEW shoes.
-The rain picked up I was soaked, heavy and itchy. My hat was dripping wet and my clothes were super heavy, gear FAIL..
-Since I ran on the portion of the trail close to the road, I had to stop for roads and lights, my legs started to cramping up.
-I could feel my mental capacity was being tested, so I pushed out the bad thoughts and kept running.
-I sped up, I wanted to be done, I wanted to EAT..
DONE!!! 15 miles at about 9:05 pace.. GOOD WORK MEL! (Self high Five well-deserved)
When I got home Muscle Man and the Little Studs were ready to head out the door. I did not realize how CHILLY it would be for the Little ones until we got going. Their Running hats and gloves were not doing the trick, so we cut the usual 2.5 miles to just 1 mile with a BIG HILL. I could have gone another loop, but I was happy with my weekend miles..
