15 mile milestone has been hit

I wore my #BostonStrong shirt today to channel the marathon training spirit needed to knock out this run. Once I hit the 13th mile I hit a wall but I dug deep and kept pushing on. sumthnglikarunner called it a day at mile 10 so I had to knock out that last 5 solo. Those sports beans pictured below were pretty good and by the end of the run that smile was completely gone. I am about to devour a pizza …starving!

Oh yeah important note to add: We ran into our first snake on a run trail today…yikes! I almost ran up on the snake because I thought it was stick until I saw its head off the ground.

Run & tone day

Pretty good weather for running today despite the slight drop in temps. I took it easy for most of this run, as you can see by the elevation chart I’m still keeping the hilly finish in the mix for training.
