18

I’ve run 18 miles or longer before, but for some reason it still feels GOOD to be able to say I ran 18 miles today!  I ran a really  successful 16 miles last Friday, so I was nervous about today’s run not going as well.  Last Friday was much cooler and overcast the whole time. … Continue reading
