Going Long


"Progress always involves risk – you can't steal second with your foot on first." -Frederick Wilcox

I actually ran 20 miles Sunday. Previous long run was 10 since IMFL and a 2 month period of gluttony. Somehow, my running buddies pulled me through Manchester for twenty.freakin.miles. Damn, it feels good to say I ran 20 miles again. I'm ready to stop being lazy for reals. I had forgotten how good a twenty miler can make you feel (after the protein shake, the shower, and dinner).

Congrats to my good friend Greyhound who PR'd the Houston Marathon, and to Jessica and Rosalind who toughed out the RNRAZ marathon!!

Gurrrl, way to go! I don't think I've seen more than 4 since November. I HAVE seen the pool a bunch, baby steps, I guess.

You went from 10 to 20?!!! You are a rock star! Thanks for the sweet comments and kindness....nothing lifts depression like registering for an ultra (only a 50K)!
