I did it!

I finished the 20 mile training run (more like 20.8 miles) with the team yesterday morning.

MAN, it was cooooold, too. It never really got above 40 degrees and my calves sure felt it.

I'll elaborate more later, but my poor house has been neglected of any and all cleaning for the last few weeks, so when I'm not feeling so guilty about dirty toilets and piles of laundry, I'll share more about the practice run.

Oh, and race day is 3 weeks from today!!!!!!

Way to go, proud of you! It was a year ago that I was capable of doing a 20 miler as I got ready for the Arizona Marathon. Now I'd be pushing it to do 10 or 12 miles! :) Glad you are feeling better! You will have the most incredible time at the marathon.

Hi Elsbeth - thanks from your kind comments on my blog. I am glad that you enjoyed the poem and also my red devil / white angel story. It was all true, exactly as I wrote it! ;)

It would be my honor if you want to share "Relentless" with your teammates. Good luck with your final training, and getting ready for the race. I will be thinking of you on race day. You will have a great time. Your grandpa and uncle would be so proud of you. There will be foghorns blowing in the desert night in honor of your finish. Hey if I could get seasick in the desert there last year just before the race, there could be foghorns, right? Best wishes - Art
