I was so nervous about my long run this weekend and you know what? It was not that bad. It definitely felt like 8 miles, but not 8 miles run while out of shape, like I thought it would be. My good luck may have been attributed to my awesome breakfast of animal cookies and a banana, or it could have been attributed to Liz's outfit. She tried to pretend that she was too cool for school, but she came to her senses and bought her first piece of lulu gear.

Not too worry sweets, we ran a few miles in one direction and then doubled back. From there, we avoided the flooded section by crossing over on the road and continuing on the trail. From that point on, the trail was in great condition. No ice!!

Let me explain away mile 6. The wind started picking up and we could not even catch our breath. There was some walking breaks. I can't lie now, the Garmin Training Center has been installed. It was a hard run but I was honestly expecting a lot worse. Now that I can review my splits so easily, I might be more motivated to push myself. Maybe by Spring (officially March 20th) I will shed all the double digit splits and the terrible winter wear!
Get ready sweets. Things are about to get speedy!
