My Longest Run EVER

April 9, 2011

I just got back from the longest run of my life – 14 miles! Woo hoo!  It felt so great to pass the half marathon mark and see that my legs were still moving!  This was my last long run before I take on one of the hardest half marathons in the U.S. – The La Jolla Half Marathon. We did part of the course today, including the super steep hill that I blogged about earlier, and I was feeling good the entire way.  I had great company too.  Nicole, Allison, and I kept the same pace, and wanted to take it easy so we wouldn’t push it too hard 1 week before the race.  While I am very excited about this race, this is merely the halfway point to my end goal – the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon.  I can’t wait to say I’ve run 26.2 miles.  Only 1% of the American population can say it, and I want to join them.  Yes, it’s on my “bucket list,” but I think I’m going to want to push myself even more after the race.  What’s next?  Maybe a triathlon.  We’ll see.  Until then, I’m going to keep up the marathon training, P90X, and maybe even some other Beachbody fitness programs to keep me strong and motivated. I’m thinking of starting Insanity The Asylum next. It was just released TODAY, and it looks like one intense fitness program!

In closing, I can’t imagine my life without workouts.  They have become a part of me.

  1. Woo! And the best part of that run was that it wasn’t even THAT hard! We killed it. I think I may be crazy but I’m actually looking forward to trying 16!
