I...am a superstar!
So Whit and I did our 20 miler on Saturday. I know, WOW! Right?! It actually went pretty well. We started, again, about 4 miles above Vivian in Provo Canyon and stayed on the river trail all the way to my house (by the lake). We didn't go all the way out to the lake, but pretty close. The first 14 miles were easy as pie, but it started to get a little hard around mile 16. But we just kept trucking along. The last mile was brutal, but Whit pushed me to keep going, and we totally finished! I'm sure that is how it's going to be for each of the last 6 miles of the marathon, just forcing my body to keep going. I guess that's what makes it so much of an accomplishment, right?! But I am starting to feel pretty good about the marathon now, like I will actually be able to do it. Pretty cool, huh?! So only 3 weeks to go, and thankfully, our mileage really tapers off. Our long runs are only 12 miles, then 8 miles, then the next week is the marathon. So, we'll let you know how it goes! Here are some pictures after the run. Don't worry that our background is the nursery. It was the only place that didn't have a glare from the windows or a mirror or that wasn't a disaster, and I'm not really sure what is up with our poses...we were tired, and weren't really thinking clearly!
