I did my 10k at the end of July, but then I just kept on going!
...11.5 miles this am, pushing Eliza in the stroller! It wasn't easy but then, it sure was easier than labor!
Why you ask? Because I signed up for my first half marathon- it is on September 15th- which also happens to be my 30th birthday!
I am struggling a little bit to find the right balance of what to eat, if I should eat, and how much to drink on these long runs. I die of thirst but then I get a cramp if I drink, so it is going to be some trial and error before the race. I am SUPER excited but also really nervous! I dream about running at night! I think I have fallen in love...
I have another race coming up this weekend too, a mud and chocolate trail run (a nice 4.5 miles, we can count it as my "speed" workout!) and I joined this running group in my neighborhood! I have only been to one of the meet ups so far but it was a BLAST!
