This morning was our 18.6 miler run, the longest to date. I did great! Slow but great! I ran for 4 hours and 20 minutes. We started at 5 am, and ran from memorial park down dunlavy to west gray, where we had a water stop at luke's locker. From there, continue down Dunlavy to Bisonett, Cherokee, and a water stop before hitting Rice. Then around Rice, then around Hermann Park, and all the way back. Blistered my pinkie toe on my right foot, could have sworn I was going to peel off my sock at luke's and have a nice bloody mess with a missing toe nail. No such luck. I had visions of people standing around me "Oh, nasty, that must hurt". Of course I would take it up, shrug it off and finish my run. No such heroics for me though.

I constantly want people to ask me how much I've run recently. The golfers in hermann park, city workers, basically anyone I run into that day and the rest of the week. Because, obviously, people can look at me and see, oh, she's a runner, I bet she ran so far today I want to oh and ah over her accomplishment.

Hmm..maybe custom t shirts? I ran ___ miles today.

Wishful thinking..
