7 miles

OH man, I am done today. We were on schedule to run 7 this morning. I had my little power bar and grapefruit juice and headed out the door at 7:15 to meet the team. It was overcast and cool which was nice since it was going to be a long run. Coach Noah gave a short clinic on nutrition and fluids and off we went. We had a new route this morning which was a nice change of scenery. We headed up Yale and then about 2 miles up we turned onto a lovely trail that wound through parks and trees and houses. It was really nice. The sun actually peaked out about 20 minutes into the run and I realized I didn’t put on sunscreen before I left. Ooops. I must have been super sleepy cause I never forget sunscreen. I felt pretty good just a little tired. It has been a tough week with work being busy and trying to fit in all my runs and get good sleep.  I realized on more than one occasion how much of a music runner I am. I always knew this, as I almost always run with and ipod. But this week especially I took more notice of how even when I am tired and struggling to keep going, if I just get to a good song on my nano I can push through. I typically run to whatever tempo is playing in my ears and I have already started making mental notes for my marathon playlist. I am going to need about four and a half hours of music to get me through this. SO here is my list so far.......in no particular order.
