I am strong...

... Ok I am not invincible, but Saturday's weather certainly made me feel that way. Mother Nature's birthday present to me was a beautiful, low humidity, 65 degree morning. I couldn't have asked for better weather to run 12 miles. (no that's not a typo!) I finished in under 3 hours and I felt good. Highlights include

  • The company of my running buddies singing Happy Birthday as we ran down the trail
  • My favorite trail (Capital Crescent Trail)
  • Realizing I am strong enough to run 12 miles
  • Finding Nikki, the wife of a former co-worker, working the water stop at mile 5.5 (isn't she lucky that the big sweaty hug she got wasn't as sweaty as it normally would be?)
The half-marathon is less than 3 weeks away and after Saturday I am sure I can finish...
