I did it! 12 miles!
I ran with one of my co-workers and it was actually nice to have someone else there to motivate me. Not just that little voice in your head cheering you on! The girl I ran with was little faster than me so she kept me moving and the last two miles I helped her by pressing on and finishing up the run at a faster pace.
We ran in Central Park and did the longer loop once, which is 6 miles, and then the lower loop three times. The 6 mile loop was pretty difficult… There were some monster hills that killed my legs in the beginning. After the first 6 miles my legs were screaming for me to stop. Hills are not my friend… I’ll have to work on that.
All in all. The run was good. The weather was perfect and the park was packed. Great people watching. Which put me in a good mood. Oh, and the recovery socks were great! Thanks Jess!!! 🙂
I now know I’m ready for the half-marathon! I can do it! Hooray!!! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
Tomorrow: Volunteering at the NYC Half Marathon!!!
