Pizza + 15 miles = Terrible Awful

The details of my most painful and mentally abusive run are below. It was awful.

I blame the pizza.

I'm looking forward to an easy 11 miler next week. I will be running part of this course BACKWARDS so I can avoid 830 feet in elevation gain. I guess there is a downside to living in a mountain valley- all of your running involves running uphill! I'm so jealous of sea level right now I could spit.

Now I'm going to attempt to take a nap (if the two year old will let me!)

At least it is overwith and you can put it in the record books. Good job with the elevation gain. That can only make you stronger. You are a rockstar!

Oh no! I really thought all that pizza would just be awesome carbo-loading! At least it's over with, like Rachelle said!

830 feet of elevation gain!?!? Crazy girl! I am amazed you ran it in 2:15. WAY TO GO!
