Eat ya heart out, Heart Break Hill.
This was at about mile 18 of my 20 mile run today. I felt great right around here but that last couple miles… Oy oy oy. The weather was perfect for most of the run- overcast and around 65. With no sun beaming down in me, I felt like I was cheating.
I want to thank all of you who have donated to my crowdrise.com/JoeyMac page. We raised 40 thousand last year- that’s hard to beat but let’s see if we can do it!!
Today’s run was the best yet for me. 20 miles in 2:55. That leaves me an hour to do the last 6. Hmm… I’m thinking the crowds will push me along and I can do another “under 4” marathon.
As tough as it is, it’s easy to remind myself that I GET to do this. I’m healthy. I have 2 legs. I have the most supportive wife who allows me to take a nap on Sunday afternoon (that I sooo needed). I have friends like you rooting me on.
I GET to do this.
