All on my own.
In a way you could call it two major accomplishments, running 20 miles, and running it all by myself. It wasn't always pretty (I got quite a few looks upon walking into Starbucks post run...), but I did it. I was pretty calm before I started, a major improvement from my last 20 mile run. I jumped when my alarm went off and got ready so fast I actually got out the door sooner than I had planned. First thought, man it's warm! Okay, for the record it was only in the low 40s, but after 2 weeks of running in freezing temperatures and windchills this morning was like a heat wave. Dang it. How in the heck do I dress for this? Yeah, I haven't been really good with that one lately.
It wasn't my best 20 mile run. There seems to be this unwelcome tend of wind on my long runs lately.
- 16 miles - cold, windy
- 18 miles - freezing, super windy
- 10 miles - freezing (ice & snow), super windy
- 20 miles - warm, super wind, rain last 2 miles
