I only had 18 miles on the schedule, but my goal was to do 30. I ate a pb&j sandwich, and headed out bright and early. The weather was absolutely perfect.
I had a great run. Even when someone let their huge, muddy dog jump on me. (And I was wearing a white skirt.) Well, that was a little annoying.
|Over halfway there!|
My darling friend, Louisa, was texting me, encouraging me through the whole run. She gave me some hilarious tips on how to run without music. ;)
Since it's not enough that 1 electronic die, around mile 20 my Garmin AND my phone died. I was expecting that from my Garmin, because the battery only lasts 5 hours. I guess I should've expected that from my phone too.
So at that point I had no music, no watch and no phone. That means no way to track my next 10 miles.
I decided to just go home and run the rest on my treadmill.

I can tell such a huge difference when I wear these on my long runs.
Last night Dan (my 100 mile running buddy) came over to figure out our plan. I can't believe it's less than 7 weeks away! And we'll be running 50 miles in 2 weeks! It's getting so real now.
We made a pact that the only thing that would stop us from finishing is if we broke BOTH of our legs. Break one leg? Keep going.
Dan is a hilarious kid, I have no doubt he'll keep me laughing the whole time too.
Have a fabulous day, my friends!!
Do you run with or without music?
