13.1 miles

12 Jul

today was a big day for me.  i’ve been training now for months for the upcoming san francisco 1/2 marathon, along with ryan, my sister, dad & brother-in-law. today is the last (hard to believe), the very last really long run (over 10) before the actual race!  i got up at 5:45, threw on my running clothes, went to strategically place water in a place on my route where i could refuel, ate 1/2 an energy bar, and i was off!  13.1 miles & a little over 2 hours later, i made it back home.  i have to say, i actually teared up a little when i finished! i am ready. san francisco here i come!!!

    CONGRATS to you Traci! That is a great accomplishment to any normal person, even more so in my opinion to a mommy of two little ones! My hats off to you!
