I don't have the energy to come up with a better title. Why? Because I ran TWENTY MILES TODAY.
And to be honest, it was a much easier run than my 18. Now I'm not saying it was easy but it was easier. I hit a wall at 17 or 18 and just shuffled the last 2 miles. But I did it. And I'm proud.
That being said, I think I need to re-evaluate my marathon goal time of 4:30. I just don't think there is ANY way that will happen. And I think I'm actually OK with it. This is my first marathon. I'm not trying to break any records. I need to just run MY race and enjoy myself.
See...I had time for some soul searching during that 20 miles.
Just run your miles. The right pace will come.
