Today was my long run and the first time I hit 7 miles! 7.19 miles to be exact! I am totally stoked it almost feels like the first time I crossed the finish line. The funny thing is I almost didn’t go out this morning. I was having one of those mornings I just wanted to stay in the bed and sleep in but I knew my running buddy Rich was expecting me so I got up. Accountability is a great thing also I had bought a new pair of Brooks Adrenaline and I had to get them out on the pavement.
During our warm up (we walked for about 5 mins; not included in the 7 miles). There were some firefighters taking pictures of the trucks in front of the Capital as we walked passed. We knew one of the guys so we attempted to stop and say hello. He was friendly but a little short; he ended by saying “enjoy your walk”. We were like walk? Do we look like we are going for a walk? Dude we are getting ready for a run. And run we did for 7.19 miles baby!
We were glad we got our run in early too we have a heat advisory for the rest of the day. It will be in the 90’s but will feel like it is in the 100’s. So be careful out there.
