So this Saturday was a 12 mile run followed by an amazing breakfast at Whole Foods with my some people from my running group. It was one of the most fun runs I've had in a while. Now, for all you people out there who think I am crazy to run 12 miles, I sort of agree with you. I mean, I just said I had fun running 12 miles. But, the crazy thing is I totally did and it is mostly because I run with a group. I love meeting new people and we all run at a pace where we are comfortable talking so it ends up being super social. This was the first time I went to the breakfast after and that made the whole experience even more fun!
I felt great after the 12 miles and I think that was due to the fact that I didn't complete all the mileage during the week before. Because of the half marathon I ran last weekend, I decided to "taper" the runs during the week so that I would feel better by the weekend. It worked!
This week the mileage is 3, 6, 3, 13. My goal is to complete all the miles.
In other running news, I am considering getting one of those cool Garmin watches. Does anyone have any advice when it comes to running watches? I can't decide if it is worth spending the money on! I really like this guy:
Also, I am almost at my goal of $1,500 for my charity, Have Dreams. To learn more about this amazing charity please check out my page: Jodie B Team Have Dreams. It is a great organization and if you know anyone who might be interested in donating please share!
