Long Run (5/2)

Quick note about today's long run. I woke up at 5am and was out the door at 5:30am. The plan was simple: run the 14 miles down Broad St to downtown Columbus to cheer on the 200+ MIT teammates running the Cap City 1/2, then turn around and run back home. The run went off like clockwork. After a couple miles at 10:00 pace to I settled into 8:30 pace and reached the Cap City start/finish in 2 hours. After cheering like crazy and loosing my voice in the process I stocked back up and ran home. Same as the first 14, finishing in 2 hours (with the last 4 at 8min pace). Total miles for the day: 28. Total time: 4:00. First day using my CamelBak. Hydration was great and I managed to eat enough to stay strong throughout. I feel like I didn't ever run today...big confidence booster. The plan tomorrow is to run 12...I'd like to log 40 for the weekend.


  1. Did you have to steal the racers' food to stock up? Good mileage!

  2. no they were guarding the finishing area like fort knox! I had to stop at a starbucks to buy bottled water and food. i got some strange looks in my running get-up and camelbak :)

  3. Haha...the looks probably came from your stinch.
