Two more weeks are left on my half marathon training plan. I went for an 11 mile run on Sunday. It was a great run for two reasons. First I ran from my mom's house and there is a hoity toity neighborhood nearby with nice houses and nature and fitness trails. It was a lovely change of pace from the feeder road and truck stop I usually run past. Secondly my nice husband put some new music on my ipod. Michael Jackson! With new music and new scenery..I ran like the wind...ok, like a strong breeze, a breath?
I "Wanna be Startin' Something", so I did a warm up lap around the neighborhood with Saige. It is nearly impossible to listen to The King of Pop without grooving so I was doing some run/dancing. Saige complained. Something about embarrassment. She rolled her eyes and, "Beat It" the next time we passed Mom's house.
The other awesome thing about this run was that the trail had a bathroom on it! I was so excited. I had to go, "BAD", so I used it even though it had signs all over it warning against trespassing. What can I say? I am a "Smooth Criminal". I used it again later just because I could.
I kept on running my motto is, "Don't Stop Til' You Get Enough!". Besides I want to be fit and look like a "PYT".
I miscalculated and finished the eleven miles and cool down walk with two more to get home so I called The Coach to come pick me up. You have no idea "The Way It Makes Me Feel" to see him pulling up to fetch me.
Eleven miles is the furthest I have ever run. It was a real....................................... "Thriller".
Thanks for playing along!!
Only a little more than a week until the half marathon!!
