Run 15.1 miles....CHECK!

Thank you God!! I made it! FIFTEEN MILES (15.1 if we're being exact)!!

I have never run this distance in my whole life, and today it happened. I had my pacing partner USCgirl with me and she kept me running strong (well, until about mile 13.5 and then it got ugly). The team met up at 8am at Back Bay loop in Newport Beach. It was sunny and hot, but we made it. My stupid ipod wouldn't turn on so I was at a loss for music but I didn't mind it as much as I thought I would because the scenery was so beautiful:

- hot and hilly
- side cramps at mile 11.5 from overhydrating all at once
- knee and hip flexor tension starting at mile 9ish
- calf tightness starting at mile 13.5

Total time: 2:54:11 - not the time I would have liked, but it was hot and hilly, so I'm just happy I finished.

What a great way to end the night - Mr.10yt made Cioppino - mmmmm!!

PLEASE take care of your knee! Ice it, heat it, take glucosimine, whatever, but you will NEVER hear the end of it if you do any damage. I worry about you kiddo.

R said...

Echoing Kate, please take care of the knee. You don't want to be on the side lines of the marathon because you couldn't run it.

Congrats on the big milestone run!! :)
