My last long run

I have at least made it through the hardest part of the training. I finished up with 11.15 miles running in the windy, rainy, freezing cold. I may have considered going a little further, but the weather prompted me to keep it shorter. Which is fine, considering that is longer than I have ever run in training before my other two halfs. I will now taper down a little for the next two weeks before the race. I’m actually pretty excited about this race. I have trained better than I did for the previous ones and I think this might be a good opportunity for me to PR. I’m at least hoping to break the 2:30 mark, which barring any injuries or something like that, I think I’m in pretty good shape to do.

I shot a quick video this morning as I was running, so I thought I’d share a little of my training with you! (The audio got a little messed up at the end… not exactly sure why, but oh well.)
