Longest run of the year

Distance: 13.1

Miles to go: 1244

Well, it hurt…  I did it… But it hurt!  In a good way…!  Last year at this time I wasn’t even sure if I would ever run again.  So it was especially sweet to run this course, which is TOUGH, with no pain (well… INJURY pain… that is…).  This course is the Columbia Half Marathon, which has a couple of nasty hills in it.  The last one ends at the 11 mile mark.  I was really glad to see the top of that hill.  As expected, I crashed shortly after that and had to slow down a bit in order to finish.  I still managed about an 8:50 pace, which I will take considering I haven’t really trained or anything.  I’m pretty sure that if I can run this actual RACE next year I can get under 1:50!  But that will be AFTER the club championships so who knows what kind of shape I will be in…
