It was hard to get out of the house today and I almost didn’t go, but I had an espresso, which got my heart pumping, and headed out the door. I ended up running 12.62 miles with 4077’ of gain. I told myself I was going to do six laps and I did; it wasn’t easy though. After the second lap, I didn’t think I could pull it off and had to fight that little voice in my head for the next two laps. Once I had four laps in, I figured I could do it. The fifth lap was much slower and I started feeling it my legs, but I knew if I had to I could walk the last lap. I ran all six laps non-stop.
