Saturday morning I laced up and headed out the door for my 9 mile run. Since my last half marathon was in September, 9 miles seemed like quite a hike for me. As I ran down the lake shore though, and the miles crept up, it actually felt great! I ran comfortably, stopping only at mile 7 to take a drink of water from the Fleet Feet Water Station just as it started to drizzle. The light rain felt nice as I finished the last 2 miles and stretched before heading back inside.
