There was this feeling. A scratchy, aching feeling in the back of my throat. I noticed it when I was returning from RoadRunner on Saturday. Hmmm. This could be T Junior’s cold. Naw. I am NOT getting sick.
|Me and Zoë after Sunday’s long run.|
I considered texting my running buddy and canceling our 7 a.m. meeting. But I really wanted to get the long run done. Also, we were supposed to meet up with Alma, her friend S, and WeROKC group member, P, at Mile 3. Plus I’ve always felt better running while sick. Mr. T gave me an Ibuprofin and I went to bed.

my Target Champion capris and they held up well!)
And, we saw the most colorful runner ever! I’m talking tie-dye and red tights. He definitely gave us a run for our money in the running outfit department. On another note (a musical one), I need to figure a longer playlist. I had to restart mine at Mile 10.
At Mile 11, Zoë’s painful neuromas were bugging her and we walked for a little bit. We chatted about walking and how it’s okay to do and how it really doesn’t make that big of a dent in your time. I’m thinking for the next long run, I will do the run/walk. I’m curious to see how my energy level will be at the end.

Awesome long run! It sounds like you and Zoe had a great time. That's quite the speedy final mile. You both look pretty fresh in your post-run shots – not like you just ran 16 miles!
Way to go, ladies! Another fab long run and of course you look GREAT!
So cool to read the long run recap from two perspectives!Anyway, well done on getting your 16 miles done.16 miles with Zoe >>>>> 16 miles aloneIf you need some suggestions for songs to fill out your playlist with, I could help out :)Actually, now that I've seen Legally Blonde, what songs do you listen to? The one about the guy is European or something else 🙂 ? Not that I'm going to add them to my own playlist… yikes! … but just curious.Well done!
