Marathon Milestone

I hit a big milestone with marathon training this weekend. My husband and I ran 17 miles, marking the longest distance I have ever run (15 was my longest before)!
Although I was very proud of myself and people deem this feat ‘impressive’, I have to be honest, marathon training is hard work; it’s time consuming, you really have to watch what you eat and drink before and after runs, sometimes you have to stop at a church on a long run to use the bathroom (!!!), I’m about blister #10 on my toes, and about 11-12, I start feeling like this:

But the truth is I’m out there doing it and getting really excited for the race itself!! One more month of really intense training lies ahead and then it’s smooth sailing to race day!
