7.7 Miles!

Another long run down and many more to go! It was extremely muggy today....not the best to run in but we made it anyway. You would think getting up at the crack of dawn (OK may it wasn't THAT early but still) would help us avoid these conditions, but no.

I'm just happy I made it and I didn't fall today, hahaha. I only had to walk twice, those 2 hills on the way back were just too much after going so far. I really need this hill workout we are having on Tuesday because currently these hills are kickin my BUTT! At this point I can't even imagine running 26 miles but as Amy pointed out, our next long run is supposed to be 10 miles so that means we are a 1/3 of the way there. Hmm...that seemed so much more encouraging when she said it than it does now that I am typing it.

After the run I looked like I had just gotten out of the swimming pool! My shorts were stuck to me and my hair was soaking wet. This is crazy, I will be happy when it starts to cool off, but enough complaining about the weather. All in all today was a wonderful day. The route was beautiful (I think I've found a new running site) and the company was great. I think I will do some biking tomorrow, I wish I had a brand new road bike like someone else I know....
