I am a complete TEN

mile runner! Today was the day...I basically scheduled my entire week around this long run. I mapped it out early in the week and psyched myself up. Maybe TOO up.

It was hard. Really, really hard. I was not hydrated enough. I got hungry. I don't really remember from miles 6 until 9. But here I sit victorious with my 10 mile run. Tired. Sore. Awesome.

Running coaches will tell you until they're blue in the face that it's better to have a bad training run than a bad race. You learn how to work through the awful feelings, the ill-preparedness and so on. So, not only did you finish, but you're just that much better prepared for whatever comes on race day!
