good Last 20 before Boston! 20 mi 02:49 08:27 pace

Jumping back in here with an update. Did my last 20 miler before Boston yesterday, and it was a relative success! My hip held up the point it really wasn't a factor in the run. (I avoided the hills to give it a break). I was really tired in the middle of the run and kept finding myself slowing down and taking silly 5-10 second breaks to clear my nose or grab a fruit chew or change my play list. Last 3 miles I started getting cold as the trail got windier (I'd taken my gloves and jacket off and didn't want to stop to put them back on), so I put Fight Song on repeat and just gritted it out. Last two miles were 8:10 and 7:49 and I felt 100% spent when I was done. Felt a little sick to my stomach too. But then about an hour later, I got some snail mail love from the BAA-- runner's passport and final info. That was a fun little reward for making it through my last 20! Really getting exciting for the big day!

    NICE!! You look like you're in great shape to really kill it! And heh, I know those runs where a few stops are "necessary". Godspeed!
