Long run Saturdays really show the progress in training that I make each week. I am at 8 miles now (10 next week) and feel good about my pace. I’m so proud I want to take a picture of my bloody sock and blistered toes. But that would be gross. Injuring myself superficially makes me feel like I’m pushing myself just enough.
This will be my first marathon, and I’m excited. Running long distances seemed like an impossible task that only really cool people did, but my half marathon taught me that I can do it.
