Breakthrough!

11.04 miles in 2:06:47!!!!

I finally broke through the 10 miles barrier!

I know it's turtle slow to some. That did include several loooong stops waiting for the traffic light to change. Nevertheless, I am pumped!!!!

Knees are okay. I still haven't gotten the x-rays because of craziness at work. BUT, it actually feels better! It's more of a sensitivity now than actual pain (although it really wasn't that painful to begin with), and I've been very mindful of it and taking it a little bit easy on my runs, but I still plan to get it taken care of.

So now that I'm done with my long run for today, I'm off to take a shower (ewwww!!!), eat lunch, go to the running store coz my 2-bottle hydration belt is no longer sufficient, do some cleaning and laundry, then dinner and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie!!!!

Have a great weekend!

Girl, I must admit-when I saw the title, I thought, "Who in the hell WANTS to run freakin' 11 + miles?" Then I remembered whos blog I clicked on and it made sense. GREAT JOB.....the farthest I've ever run was about 8 miles and I was much, much younger. Sounds like you are just ROCKIN' IT!! :O
