10 miles!

Since Marcee and I are going to be away this weekend we figured we could run the long run during the week. We hadn't really done anything like this after work or a day of eating so I was a little worried.

To our surprise, we felt good--even better than we did during Saturday's 8. It took us 1 hour and 44 minutes.

It was very thick and muggy so we were soaked abut .5 a mile in and a bird pooped on me but if you aren't sweating your not working hard enough right? We took a picture afterwards and decided to document our long runs through pictures (we'll post some later)

When I got home and ate, I felt really energized--it took me about 2 hours to wind down and get to bed. My legs a little sore this morning but nothing a few stretches can't handle.

I am still in shook we ran and felt good on a Wednesday! I didn't even run 10 miles for my half so I was pretty worried.

Well I am in a friends wedding this weekend so the running will be scarce. But it's only going to up the mileage from here on out!
