No need to send me any reminders, I actually got my butt out there today and ran. 13.1 miles to be exact. Once I started running and realized that it had been a week and a half since my last long run of 12 miles, I decided to do a half marathon today. And what a gorgeous day for it! It is amazing that there are still some vibrant colored leaves on the trees. I forgot my watch at home but I got back to my car one minute shy of 2 hours so that’s just over a 9 min/mile pace. Here are some pics from my run today, on my favorite long running route in White Hall, VA:
Before I set out I was afraid that I would need some extra motivation because I’ve been feeling a bit lethargic lately (luckily once I got started I felt pretty great, but the songs were nice to listen to nonetheless). I call this my inspirational running playlist and it includes some guilty pleasures. Here’s the playlist:
I told ya some of them are cheesy (although if you don’t have Van Halen, Right Now on your running playlist you are crazy…I always have it come on when I hit mile 20 in a marathon because it really gets me to dig in).
13.1 miles done…one run closer to Vegas!!! 🙂
