22 Miles!!!!

we DID it!!!!

22 miles pacing 9:19 miles. We ran for 3 hours and 25 minutes. The pace includes all stops including a bathroom stop for mr. jason.

This was a specatular run. It was a beautiful day in the city and we ran all the way to the Museum of Science and Industry. that has always been a landmark that I have alway wanted to run to. We also ran along side the Chicago Half marathon which was fun.

I feel more confident about the 26.2 coming up in 3 weeks now. I think we can break 4 hours as while we were running the miles that were around 9 min/miles felt VERY comfortable and effortless.

ok one more trip to the old pace for last minute stuff then nap time!

(i realize that this isn't the most brilliant post....but mrs. leah is a bit sleepy :-)!!!! but she's very excited about the run and wanted to get it down!)

Awesome run you guys! Awesomeness was had by all! The marathon has no chance against the two of you. None.

Great job you two, you are so ready for this thing. Enjoy the taper.

Considering that you will be much more rested after the taper, 4 hours should be toast.

Well done. Finishing such a long run is extremely satisfying, isn't it?
