Whew. 20 miles down, and it feels amazing. Savannah is just around the corner. I cannot believe we only have 5 long runs left on our training schedule which began back at the end of May. I have to say, last year I only trained up to 18 miles and this just doesn’t cut it on race day..lesson learned. So this benchmark was a big one for me….the longest run I’ve put in since last December!
Our training game plan has been altered a bit, we’ve missed a long run or two to say the least. But hey, it’s life. I love that about marathon training. It’s not going to be perfect, but you get better at it as you go. To me the most important thing is to have fun and to find true enjoyment in whatever way you choose to move.. what we do on the day to day is what matters most.
I love quiet morning runs around here..so pretty.
Yes, dietitians eat fried food too.
Eric said my eyes were bigger then my stomach today.
There may have been some truth to that 😉 —-> Leftovers.

Hi Regan. I missed FNCE ;(. I hope I get to go next year. Any plans to visit Orlando soon? I will be coming up that way for the Florida game in a few weeks.
And yes, it’s fried calamari and banana peppers..good combo on the rare occasion, of course..

Missed you at FNCE, but hope to meet you in person soon!
Is that a picture of calamari? Whatever it is, it looks very fried… and very good 😉

Carolina, I can totally relate. I’ve been thinking the same thing! The first two months were right on, and then it slumped off a bit. But ya know, maybe that’s alright? Training at a pace thats right for you and allowing yourself to have some wiggle room can be very freeing. Plus, NYC has it’s perks 😉

I’m in a major training rut, but I think it has to do with training for so long for a marathon. What keeps me going is the entry fee I paid for this race lol
A Wildside just opened in College Park near me, I think I went there on one of their first days open. Cute place! Hopefully it will start actually feeling like fall soon.
