I knew it was going to change in the afternoon so I made sure I had plans for the kids (thanks little sister) while I attempted my longest run ever. 17 miles. It seemed daunting when I started out. All those miles yet to go. All the hills I had to run. But I knew all I could do was take it one step at a time.
My previous longest run was 16 miles, I did it once last year. My longest run so far this year was 15, but I felt like with all the time off from running this week due to sick kids and being sick, it was totally doable.
I also included Grandma Lil's Half Marathon virtual run in my run yesterday. If you want to participate you have until the 28th to either run a 10k or a half marathon. There are some great prizes.
Half marathon time. Woohoo less than 4 miles to go to get to 17 miles. At this point it felt completely doable and no longer so scary. I was starting to feel pretty tired though.
Here is the elevation changes I went through. Lots and lots of hills! No wonder my legs were so tired at the end! I do have to say that I feel pretty cool for having a 17 miler under my belt :)
