6 Miles!

Today I ran 6 miles in 1:15 (12:30 mile per average, 30 seconds faster per mile than the Turkey Trot).  Loved it.  Felt strong, quick, and mentally tough.

Next Saturday: 7 miles.  When I think about I remember that scene in Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring where Frodo's friend, Samwise, says 'if I take one more step, I'll be the furthest from home I've ever been.'

7 Miles.


I can only barely imagine it.  The Disney Princess Half Marathon is two months away from Monday.  Here's the hopeful schedule of longer runs:

12/31 7 Miles
1/7 8 Miles
1/14 8 Miles
1/21 9 Miles
1/28 9 Miles
2/4 10 Miles
2/11 10 Miles
2/18 8 Miles

February 26th: RACE DAY!

Seriously, it will be here before I know it.
