Ran 14 miles today with Drusy! She's a friend from England. I "met" her last year when, on a message board, she posted asking for ideas of good running stores in the Seattle/Bellevue area. We had planned to get together last year when she was here, but she got sick. She's training for the London Marathon (her first) so we decided we'd get together for 12 miles. (That was on my schedule.)
We met at Marymoore Park. Roy brought the dogs so he could take them to the dog park while we ran. We talked the ENTIRE way! At one point she attached her J-River audio recorder to me and did some interviews. We were talking so much that we missed the six mile turnaround point. Okay, so plan changed. Now the goal is to run THIRTEEN miles! What's a mile between two chatty friends?
And then well...nobody ever accused me of being Magellan. So I took a wrong turn...and, uh, plan changed. Hey, why not FOURTEEN miles?
It felt REALLY good! No pain on the run at all, not even in the belly! I still get sore and swollen at night, but pretty much I feel back to normal! Hally-loo-yah! I still have a little swelling where the hematoma hasn't completely absorbed (Roy calls it my Alien Baby...hawt!) but oh well! I'm just happy to be feeling good!
