May 26. Lets just do a half real quick
Sleeping on the couch doesnt provide much comfort for a long run the next day, but that was the case as I seem to wake everyone up at 5:00am otherwise. Well that sucked, because everyone was up anyway. Whatever. My goal today was to just frikin run. I didnt care how far how long or how far, I just wanted to run. Today I saw an awesome dude in my youth group going to graduation. Just a great kid. I didnt see much else, other than the same group leaving for carowinds. I had no gummy gu's today. I only had some gatorade and a banana before the run but have mercy the energy was limitless. I'm pretty sure I could have run another 10-15 miles before I just passed out, but I stopped. I stopped at 13.19. Thats a 1/2 dang marathon. I can put a 13.1 sticker on my car now, no? 2 months ahead of schedule. Not to shabby for a 220 lb dude who couldnt run a 5k in under 46 minutes 5 months ago. I think I'm going to start tapering these runs off a little now. I've gained the confidence I CAN do this, now I just need to keep the feet and knees able.
