ImageI successfully finished my longest run ever and it felt wonderful! I can honestly say that I never thought I would or could be able to run 10 miles. I feel like a “real” runner! When I was finished, I didn’t feel like I wanted to pass out or uncomfortably sore. I think my body is getting used to running longer distances! I also drank 3x more water on this run than my last run and really felt an improvement in my energy levels in the last few miles. Takeaway lesson: DRINK LOTS OF WATER!

ImageToday, I woke up early to get in a 5 mile run before Mother’s Day brunch and I am so happy I did because at 7am it was already hot outside! I am also pleased that I brought water with me because I sweat A LOT!Image
