I am proud to say, I can no longer say "I have yet to run anything over 14 miles!!!" We did 16.5 miles on Saturday and yes it was hard, and yes it was HOT - had one member that ended up really sick due to the heat - but I did it, I was very diligent about fueling myself during the run, making sure I stayed hydrated and making sure I listened to my body. It also helped tremendously that after my wonderful hubby had finished with his 5 miler (he is tapering for his goal race next week) he went out on the bike and was there for me if I needed him. All I really needed from him though was the fact that he was out there. I felt so good coming off the bridge and running in to our "finish line" I'm sure everyone heard me for miles around I was that excited!! So next week is cowtown - my hubbys goal race and a step back in mileage week for thse of us training for the full marathon!
