Out of the Teens

Today was a breakthrough day in my marathon training. I ran 20 miles! Fortunately, it was Columbus Day weekend and I did my long run on my day off from school. 

The last mile and a half was tough and my legs were starting to feel tired all over. That makes sense since I had been running for over 3 hours. The scary thing is that I will still have another hour of running to go on race day. But, I can't think about that right now. 

I've been practicing my fueling for the marathon on all of my long training runs: ClifShot Bloks & water every 4 miles and Cytomax after the first hour. It seems to be working. But, it's a pain to carry all of this in my fuel belt. I didn't realize it until I was in the shower, but my belt left a little mark on my back... chafe much? 

20 days to go!
