13- Mile Trail Run

Posted Sep 03 2010 2:07pm
Today my dad took off from work, so we wanted to do something different for a run. We decided to drive to a location to do a course we ran last year for our last 20-miler before Philly. That was at the very beginning of my blogging days and I nicknamed the route " Namaste Run " because we one of the farms we passed was name Namaste Farm. How perfect. Of course, this time I had to get pics

You can't see the sign at all in this blurry cell phone pic...

More terrible cell phone photos...

It was a beautiful day for a run, although I was pretty sore from FIT last night.

The run was overall kind of slow, but here's why

The long run for this week was supposed to be 15, but I'm pretty sure this qualifies. It was that hard. The run basically turned into a 13 mile run including a 25 minute progression run at the end. We were both exhausted by the end. I can't believe we made that route a 20-miler last year. It is the perfect tough 13 miler. After showers and a quick walk for the pup, we went out for some well deserved sandwiches and ate lunch in the park.

After lunch we went to Starbucks and I got my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season- grande with skim milk and half the pumps :) It was a lovely day!
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
