What an amazing day! I got to run big miles, with great company, I didn't hate it, I'm not hurting (too much) and I'm JUST HAPPY!

I headed out the door at 5:30am to meet Jennifer S. and Brewer at 6am. We had a good time and chatted. We enjoyed a nice frozen sunrise. The temps weren't terrible, we were both dressed for it. Janesville is so peaceful early in the day! She planned the route, which was really nice and we did 14 together.

I met Steve K. at the y and he brought some soup, tea and coffee along with other snacks. I can't get over how he is such a good guy! He drove his car over to Rockport park and I ran there, he drove along side me a couple times to cheer me on! I needed a little encouragement at that point. My hands were just about frozen! Thankgoodness I brought handwarmers.

After we got to Rockport, we quickly learned that the trails would take too much time and energy so after 5 miles we headed out to finish up on roads. We ran on the bike trail out by Steve's place. At this point, past 26 miles I was mixing walking and running. Hiking uphills, walking and eating, and running when I felt I could. I needed to conserve energy!

Overall it was an awesome morning.... 32 miles turned into 33 and I'm totally fine with that! Really, there's not much I can complain about!!! except for water freezing at mile 2.5 and being totally unusable at mile 5. But I managed and made it through!!! Feeling really good today! Reallly realllly good :)
