11 Miles & One '11 Memory
I ran home to get my dog for the last 5 miles and ran a marathon paced mile for the 10th mile. I didn't eat another gel or drink extra water on this hot day which might have something to do with a side ache in the last mile. After a short walk, the side ache went away. Average pace for 11 miles: 10:00.
On one of my walks in Aberdeen, I stopped to take a picture of the flowers. An elderly man stopped to offer to take a picture of me and the flowers. I gave him my camera and smiled. And I smiled. And I smiled! He had a little trouble with my camera and kept taking pictures until he was satisfied with one. Most of the photos looked like this one, but it's a fun travel memory!
I ran 2097 mostly fun-filled miles in 2011. Not every run is perfect, but most are good ones, so it's been fun! Some of the miles have been in training for the Houston Marathon which is getting closer! January 15 predicted weather is 47-60° & sunny. I'd like it a little cooler, but that's not bad!
