|I look pretty awake for 3:45|
We were scheduled for 11 miles today. Last week we did 10. The longest I have ever run outside of a half marathon is 9, so we're definitely getting into higher miles now. I'm feeling pretty confident that I can PR at the Disneyland Half with all of this training. I do have the ET Half in a couple of weeks, but I'm concerned about the fact that it's at an elevation of something like 4800 feet and goes uphill for the first 6 miles. Not really a race for me to try and PR. I'm honestly worried about how tough that one might be. Anyway...

The nice thing about running with a team is that we have a water cooler to refill our Camelbak's, etc, while we're out there. And it's always nice to have icy water to pour on your head.

Around mile 9 or so...
Later, I downloaded Spirit Of The Marathon and watched it on my iPad. I highly recommend watching it to anyone that races. It's really inspiring and touching. Plus, they share lots of marathon history, which is cool.
Seriously, I teared up multiple times. I cried when I crossed the finish line of my first half and then again when I did 2 half marathons in one weekend. I can't even imagine what a wreck I will be in NYC. Two thumbs up.
I've also managed to get myself addicted to Pinterest. Nice. Now I have no reason to ever put down my phone. But there's lots of marathon pictures. Here's a cool picture of wind chimes made from old marathon medals. Cool, huh?
