75/365: After Ten Miles

Friday - time for another self portrait.

I plan to run a half marathon in 4 weeks, so I have been training, increasing my mileage each week. Normally, I run my long distance on Saturday, but since Scott is out of town (in Indy at the Big 10 Basketball Tournament), I decided to take a vacation day today and run the allotted distance while the kids were in school. Ten Miles today.

I purchased a water belt last week after I lugged a 16 oz water bottle around during my run - it was warm and my shorts have small pockets. This low profile water bottle holds 12 oz, and I bought a small 4oz bottle that fits in my pockets.

1 hour and 40 minutes later, I arrived back home. It's not pretty, but here's what I look like after running 10 miles.

Yeah, I used my handy Remote Control for both pictures.

I think you look wonderful! I wouldn't look that good if I ran 10 feet. ;)

Congratulations on your training! I ran a 1/2 marathon last may and crossing the finish line is one of my proudest moments. I am {NOT} a runner. I actually hate it. But I did it anyway. Be sure to get a couple of those gel replenishers (the name escapes me right now). The really do work!!

Wow--good for you! I don't even run, and I look like that most of the time. Kudos on your training!

I ran my first half last October and I thought I was going to D-I-E! You look waaaaay better than I did after, I looked like I belong strapped to a hospital bed!
