Day 270: 16 Miles and Counting

This is insanity. Why did I make this my personal goal for turning 50? Who runs this much? Those people must be crazy, wait, that's me.... well then I am certifiable!

I ran 16 MILES today. That is the most I have EVER run in my life. I'm still alive so that's a good sign.

The Los Angeles Marathon is 9 weeks away, and while 16 miles may sound impressive, I still need to log another 10 miles to complete a marathon. I told you, it's insane behavior!

My recovery was a bit tough this afternoon, but I did not collapse. It is amazing what we can train our bodies to handle. If you had told me one year ago that I'd be able to run 16 miles, I would have laughed in your face.

But, I did and next week I'll do it again, and I'll continue to tack on more miles. I really hope my body hangs on.... if you have been following my running antidotes, you know I have gone through intense pain to get to this point. It has been some journey, that's for sure!
