12 Miles

I passed a physical and psychological barrier today: I ran 12 miles. Last year while training for a half-marathon I tried running 12 miles and pulled my achilles tendon. Ouch Ouch Ouch. Couldn't run for quite a while after that and sort of fell into a quiet funk of self-doubt. I still have not done any running events longer than 10k. But a year later, and a year wiser, I seem to have survived the longer run unscathed other than some minor shin pain.

Now all I have to do is add another 14 miles on to that.

Shoot for the big one. Add a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile back and then another 14 miles to it. Great job!! I ran my longest run ever yesterday, 7 miles.
