Give Me A Two, Give Me A Zero, What Have We Got? 20 Miles
I'll admit I was nervous. Why? Well, because 20 miles (to me) is a pretty big deal. I'm still at the point that I'm still convincing myself that I'm a distance runner. So to go out and run/walk/crawl/complete 20 miles is still a pretty big milestone for me.
The weather on Saturday was warmer than what it was earlier in the week. It was humid and super foggy. Oh, and it was dark. Yeah, I started around 6am so it was still dark out. I ran the first 12 miles solo before I met a friend who ran the last 8 with me.
Meeting my friend at 12 miles was great. It really helped to break up the run and it gave me something to look forward to.
My last 8 was tough, and my friend had to push/nudge me along. But I did it. I completed my fastest 20 miler yet.
