I had a late start to my run this weekend. I'm not sure why 10 miles felt so much more than last week's nine. But here are a few notes about:
I wanted to stop at a convenience store near the end of my run, so I just circled it for the last quarter-mile of my run and then went inside. I bought some tacos, CLIF bars and a chocolate milk. But this still left me about half a mile from my apartment.
So if anyone spotted me for that last part, they saw me slowly walking with my oversized reflector vest, visor with a headlamp (while the sun is already out), arm reflector, hydration belt, handheld water bottle, drinking chocolate milk and carrying a bag of tacos. I'm sure I was a shining example of what not to do while running.
Anyway, I had shared a banner in an earlier post that was on the McAllen Marathon page. It read, "A half-marathon is just a 5K with a 10-mile warmup." Well, I got the warmup done.
