What's One More Mile

This was supposed to be a 13 mile run for me, but my running partner wanted to do a little over 14 today. Instead of having her run ahead and me turn around early, I decided why not just do 14. It was supposed to be a slow run with a pace of 11:30-12:30. We hit our overall target pace. Near the end, we were pressed for time and had to run the last 2 miles in the 10's.

I tried "GU" for the first time today. It was super sweet, made me a little nauseous and it intensified my stomach cramps a little, but I do believe I could felt a difference in my energy level. I will try it again. I know with these longer runs, I have to find a way to fuel and hydrate. Thankfully our route allowed us a bathroom stop.

We saw lots of wildlife along the way - deer, skunk, rabbits, birds, squirrel (with no tail), ground hog and on the way back, I stepped OVER a snake that was still very much alive.

Today was my longest run so far...
