So much better

Nothing to do with the content of this post, but this song has been going through my head since finishing today's run.

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.
