I ran 15 miles Friday. I wasn't sure how I'd feel doing a long run so soon after Saturday's The Woodlands Half Marathon. Before I started the run, 15 miles seemed like a long way. But after 6 miles I felt confident that I could finish. That's how it usually goes. Running is nice like that!
Fuel pre-run: Light and Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes. In the recipe, there's a great buttermilk substitution: 1 cup buttermilk = 1/4 cup plain yogurt + 1 tablespoon vinegar + 3/4 cup milk.
Is full fat dairy actually better for you? (audio link) I used whole milk for the pancakes. I used to use non-fat, but now I like to use whole milk. It fills you up and bodies need some fat.

Today: 5 mile run with my dog. I like doing short, easy runs after long run days. They make my legs feel great when I'm done!
