Yes, I am feeling so much better than yesterday. To be honest it would be hard not to. That's right - I'm over being carelessly insulted by a 7 year old. It's that kind of moral strength that makes me the person I am. (And yes - that is sarcasm).
I didn't expect much from today's run. I got home from the airport last night after midnight and didn't get to bed until 1. I had decided to sleep with no alarm, so I woke up around 9:30. After fueling with my beloved bagel I got myself out and running.
I had planned on 10 miles, making it a shorter mileage run as a cut back from building weeks. I was amazed today, though. I got to 10 miles and felt so awesome that I decided to add in another 3. Why three? Well...
That's right - 13 got me to my 100 mile November goal. I made it - with days to spare! Yes!
I feel so good. I really do. I feel strong and confident, and I am extra excited now. 1 year (a little less) to the marathon - and today I know that I can build myself to be ready.
Today I am thankful for strong bodies and progress. And the joy that a good run can bring.
