What's Up Bitches?!?!

22 MILES that's what!

Yesterday morning Jason and I headed out for the last long training run before the taper starts. Since the Fleet Feet people were going to be out there for a their "Ready to Run" run we decided to go as early as possible so we wouldn't have to deal with them too much.

This ended up being a great plan. We got down to the lakefront path at about 6:10am and after about a mile we were treated to a beautiful sunrise over city.

I have to make this short because I have a ton of work to do today, but in short, the last many miles were fast (less than 8:30). Our last mile was in 7:29 and we finished this run in 3:11:39. I went and checked the archives of this blog and found that we had done this run in 3:25 last year. So about 15 minutes faster which is super nice to see. I'm feeling way confident about the marathon now and looking forward to tapering.

Ok now I must get my physics on.
