Seriously, it's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to something, train, and have complete determination!
Never when I started running back in 2003, the little 5k's I did when I was about 230 lbs, did I ever think I could run anywhere NEAR 18 miles! But that's what happened this last weekend!
The last 4 miles were rough for a friend of mine and I walked a little bit with her. But the stopping and starting was hurting my knees so I asked if she minded if I ran the last 1.5 miles and she was fine with it. I did go back for her and run in with her at the end though. But yes, 18 miles complete!!
Only about 1 month until the marathon!
I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend!
