my last long run...

Today was my last long run before the half marathon on Sunday. I ran 8 miles and also fell flat on my face. Like...wiped out--flat on my face! I ran by my mom's house, while she watched my kiddos, in the town I grew up in and ran XC, winter track and spring track for years and years so the courses are so familiar and fun for me. Right around the 2.5 mile mark my foot hit a damn uneven sidewalk and I oh so gracefully tripped, landed on my hands, then knee and then somehow on my hip and finally wound up on my back. Seriously? I'm 31. There I was laying on my back in the middle of the sidewalk. BWAHAHA! I'm seriously such a klutz, always have been and apparently always will be. The first thing I looked at was my pants bc if I ripped my pants then I would have cried, but all was well. I brushed off my hands and continued on for 5.5 more miles. :)

I gotta say I really can't believe that I am up to 8 miles and feel good. I ran 10 last Sunday and felt pretty good too. It just feels so great to accomplish something and to have my old hobby back. Plus some ALONE time isn't so bad either ;)

I've got an easy week (running wise--doesn't help much that Em's party is SATURDAY!) and I'm more than excited for race day!! My goal is to be under 2:10, we'll see how it goes...wish me luck!!
