11 miles DONE!!

Woot!!! I did 11 miles this morning, my longest distance that I will do before my half marathon in December. I am glad to have that out of the way. I ran with a marathon training group today in town on a trail(paved) that I had not done before. I was a little worried that there would not be people there that went my speed but luckily there was a couple (boyfriend/girlfriend) and they went just my speed so it was GREAT!!! I actually did 8 miles with them. The training plan they are on that is all they had to do today then I did another 3 miles by myself. It went by pretty fast though so that wasn't bad. We started at 6AM!!!! It was a little rough getting up that early to get started but it was worth it and I was so glad I got it over with. I hope I can run with them in the future again. As long as that couple continues to run with them anyway. There were 2 other ladies but they went pretty fast. Much faster than I like to or can go. It was a GREAT trail though. I just really enjoyed the whole experience.

My girls are taking a nap. I had an awesome baked potato and some deer summer sausage for lunch now I am headed to the shower and going to lay down and possibly fall asleep myself.
