Whew, the last long run of marathon #4 training is done.
22 miles in 3:32:33 at a 9:39 pace
I’m not going to say it was all easy. For sure it had it’s moments, but I was able to overcome old doubts trying to resurface. I pushed them out of my mind and stayed focused on the goal at hand. This is exactly the attitude that I need to duplicate on race day.
Never did I think that my comfort mileage would change from the 10 to 15 mile mark. Choosing a clean eating lifestyle and changing my approach to hydration has allowed me small victories out on the road. I feel like the lessons I’ve learned over the past year especially in the past 14 weeks have made me a stronger runner but maybe even more importantly, a more confident woman.
Now I have traded in the Asics 3010 for the day to enjoy an afternoon watching NASCAR in my new fuzzy slippers! These babies are great, just like a blankie for your feet. I don’t care that The Hubby thinks they look like caveman boots. Men!
Yesterday, I decided to try a new pancake recipe thanks to Tina. You know how much I love pancakes!

Into the pan
Onto the plate
And into the belly, oh so good.
