Over the weekend, Tiffany and I met for our long run on Saturday instead of Sunday. I planned to run 10 miles, but towards the end of the run, I felt I could go further. I ran 12 miles easy. 🙂
By Florida standards, it was a very cold morning. At 6:30 a.m., frost still covered the ground as the temperature sat a frigid 36 degrees. Although we were freezing during our run, it was a great run. I took it easy at about a 10 minute pace. It was just the run I needed to boost my confidence for Sunday’s marathon. I feel ready.
Also during our run, we enjoyed the view of a hot air balloon launching in the distance. We need to run on Saturdays more often!
I hope to run a few light runs this week, but I will be taking it easy. I noticed my BFF Hal suggests a 2 mile run the day before the race and funny enough, I am still considering running in the 5k on Saturday since so many of my friends are running in the race. I will decide Friday morning at the expo if I will run in the 5K or not.
