Today I ran 6 miles in 1:15 (12:30 mile per average, 30 seconds faster per mile than the Turkey Trot). Loved it. Felt strong, quick, and mentally tough.
Next Saturday: 7 miles. When I think about I remember that scene in Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring where Frodo's friend, Samwise, says 'if I take one more step, I'll be the furthest from home I've ever been.'
I can only barely imagine it. The Disney Princess Half Marathon is two months away from Monday. Here's the hopeful schedule of longer runs:
12/31 7 Miles
1/7 8 Miles
1/14 8 Miles
1/21 9 Miles
1/28 9 Miles
2/4 10 Miles
2/11 10 Miles
2/18 8 Miles
February 26th: RACE DAY!
Seriously, it will be here before I know it.
