Pushing past the edge

8, maybe 10 miles. But I was thinking 8.

But somehow, with some patience and a little help from my friends (well, one friend - Thanks Rob), I ran almost 14 miles (13.68 mi) in 3 hours exactly. A very slow pace of 13:09/mile, but all the miles and time - total quality.

Best thing of all, the only thing that hurt was the good kind of hurt in my calves and hamstrings. My stress fractured area was a non-issue. *BIG CHEEZY GRIN*

This run has shown me a few things:

1.) With enough patience, I can go long...not fast, but long.
2.) Doing the Seattle Ghost Marathon or 50k at the end of the month looks more doable.

Totally looking forward to tomorrow and beyond. Totally.

Cool, welcome back (sort of speak). I'll see you at the Ghost starting line!
