Totally knocked out 19 miles today

So. Totally knocked out 19 miles today.

Le Splits:

This was a really awesome, confidence-boosting run. I felt like I finished super strong. Even though I was alone, and I got a late start, and it was 11:45 a.m. and bloody hot.

26.2 miles? I could so do that.

It took 3 hours and 40 minutes in all. That was a journey. It started with the This American Life podcast about superintendents (really good),  about patents (also pretty good), then I met up with Wanda and Jen for ~3 miles, then the Hype Machine August podcast, then a Planet Money episode about the American dollar, then … Fergie. (Hey! It was all semi-respectable before that.) That was a long ass time of media engagement.

I feel guilty when I go out running all morning and then want to sleep all afternoon. So when I got back, Tony and I went out shopping and that lasted … an hour or so … before I needed to collapse in an exhausted heap. I ate an entire bag of Smartfood and slept until 4:30 p.m.

Yeah, I went there.

Five weeks left!
