Easier Than it Looks

I totally ran 8 miles this morning – a new distance PR for me! – and it was  no sweat.  Okay, it was sweaty, but I definitely didn’t need to be as apprehensive as I was!


  • Distance:  One GPS said 7.8 and another said 8.2, so we took the average!  🙂  I consider that 8.
  • Time:  I forgot to look at my watch!  But, the closest I estimate is 1:40 because my watch said 1:50 after about ten minutes of stretching and chatting back at Fleet Feet.
  • Fuel:  I drank a LOT of water and munched on a packet of GU Chomps both times we hit our water stop, which is about 2.5 miles into our 8-mile loop.

I need a shower…
