I Want My Medal!

Today was my weekly "test myself," "pretend I'm at Disney World," long run. If you remember, last week I THOUGHT I had done enough for the next Duck medal from Jeff W. But it turned out I did 6.50 miles, and I needed 6.55 to get a new medal! Arrgghhhhh!!

So today, as usual, I added .25 to last week's run, which means I really DO get a new medal this week!! Send it on over Jeff!!

Thanks to some food advice from Rae, and learning from my run last week, I had an easier time of it today. I still don't know how in the world I am going to get through 13 miles, but at least we do have a few months left to work up to it!

I run at a Metro Park which has a 7-mile paved bike/walking path around a lake. It's a beautiful place, a little hilly, and today there was a nice breeze blowing across the lake. And since it's Michigan, and not really summer yet, it was a balmy 67 degrees. Excellent running weather!

Deb,

You never know what you are capable of until you actually try it. I know you will do great at the half. Keep moving forward.

You've been doing AWESOME, Deb! By the time we get to Disney, you'll be thinking about the full marathon for 2010! :-)
