I've been "blog" dodging for a few weeks...but I haven't quit running! I did a bunch of 2, 3, and 4 mile runs for a couple weeks after the HM - but nothing major.
Last night I got the itch and the motivation to get out there and do a big one. I ran 10 miles and barely noticed. It's amazing what a few weeks of rest will do. I'm not even sore today which is a shocker too. My right hip has been throbbing for about a week but that's not any worse than it was. The humidity was about the only thing slowing me down last night but it was OK. Everytime I felt tired and wanted to walk, I just thought about my big sister and how I'm sure she has felt the same way and didn't stop...so I shouldn't either. : ) Thanks for motivating me without even being there, Amy! The first few miles were rough and I felt like I was a flailing (sp?) idiot that's never walked, much less ran before. After I got into my zone though things went well. I walked about a mile of it total, here and there.
That's about it for me...now I have to get busy catching up on all of your blogs!
