Yesterday I ran my first 9 miler and it went pretty dang well, if I do say so myself. I was able to use the ladies room before the run. Actually, funny story, there was a line for the bathroom and so while I was in line they started the warm ups. DOH! So, what did I do? I followed along in line. haha I didn't get an awesome night of sleep but I think the fact that I had slept so well the previous night, was helpful. So, the run started and I ran it slow... cuz that's my pace!
I DO need to add a second water bottle to my belt. I was out of liquid refreshment by mile 7, so not a huge deal, as I was almost done, but you never want to be out before you're done. Overall, I had none to very little pain. I had some general pain, but that's seriously to be expected when running NINE MILES. haha
Another factor that helped is it was one of those pretty gorgeous mornings for San Antonio. Crisp, cool air. YEAH!
Alright, well I just wanted to do an update since my last run didn't go so awesomely...
So just remember boys and girls... just because 8 miles sucked, doesn't mean 9 miles will suck.
