Kicking Butts and Taking Names

I ran 13 miles in 2 hours yesterday. I was on pace for just under 10 minute miles all the way through mile 6. On the way back, i felt great around mile 9 and picked up the pace to the finish.

It was FREEZING. Literally. My GU froze, the water and gatorade at the water stops froze, and a man had an sweat ICICLE on his hat! My scarf kept freezing. Despite the cold, I felt great.

Yesterday’s run makes me completely confident I will finish the marathon–without walking 🙂
