18 miles with a big scare
Today on our 18 mile we almost got hit by a car. It was insane!! We were running in the road down the bike lane of a very wide road when a car sped up an swerved towards us. Luckily T was paying attention an pushed me out of the way up onto the sidewalk. The car came inches away from the curb then swerved back into their lane. I yelled a few choice words and it took about a mile before my heart stopped pounding. Never have I come that close to being hit while running and I swear it was intentional.
As for the rest of the run it was touch hard but we did it. I took 2 Roctane GUs. One at mile 5.5 and one at 12.5. No music today so there were a few tough miles when we were trying to come up with really exciting topics - like back to school shopping and backpacks. Ha ha.
At least my new shoes are a perfect match with my favorite running skirt.
Right after the run I had to rush to work and do a training - so I had to wear my fancy clothes to work. No compression sleeves with flats today. After about an hour I thought I was going to die. So painful.
