I decided to enter the Ragnar Relay "Runner of the Month" contest on Facebook. So far, there's only 18 entries, so I may have a shot at it! I submitted the picture of me with Gene Snisky, before our workout, in my neon pink RR t-shirt. It's funny because I am 5' tall and he is 6'8" and he's standing directly behind me so you can really notice the size difference. And you get a good idea of the size of his "banana hands!"
The temperature was so nice yesterday (minus the torrential downpours)! It was so cool out that I wore jeans and a hoodie! I knew that meant it would be perfect for a run outside this morning. So, I said I would go for 7 miles today (after my 6 mile run last Saturday) and I DID IT! I think that was the furthest I've ever run outside. By the last mile I was really dragging my ass, but I did it. I have to say, the streets by my house seem to all have a hill, sometimes two. The last one nearly did me in, but I never stopped, never took a walk break. I was so glad to see my house and the bottle of ice water I had waiting for me on my stoop.
Not bad considering last year I finished my 10k in 1:04! I mapped out my route on www.mapmywalk.com and it said I did 7.23 miles. Now that would be REALLY impressive!
