The last couple weeks have been crazy. But crazy in a good way. My travel schedule has taken me to Vegas, and the Kentucky Derby on back to back weekends (actually with only a day in between).
Although I love my busy schedule, it posed an issue in getting in my last 20 mile run before my Marathon on May 20th. After going through all my options, it was determined that the only option for running my 20 miler would be doing it before work. Ouch.
Lucky for me, running buddy Diana was also in the same predicament as I was, and would be running the 20 miler with me. Her too, before work.
Wednesday afternoon I created us a route, as well as a water plan. If the route panned out perfectly, we would have a great 20 m mile course around Lee’s Summit.
Wednesday evening it was early to bed (ok, not as early as it should have been…..), and I set my alarm for well before the crack of dawn.
Thursday morning came much too quickly. And by 4:15 I was out the door to begin our 20 mile adventure.
We planned our run to have two water stops at Quick Trip. This was the perfect plan. We were able to refuel on our GU, and get ice water and Gatorade. I was praying I didn’t run into anyone I knew…seeing that our second water stop was in the middle of the morning rush. Good news – I saw no one!
By 7:40am, our run was over. We rocked it, and most importantly had FUN.
By 8:30am, I was out the door for work.
By 9:00, I was at my desk
By 9:45am, I was ready for a BIG nap 🙂
And all day, I felt like a total bad ass. I mean, how many crazy people run 20 miles before work?!
Have you had a #Dedication moment recently? Or an accomplishment you would like to brag about? If so…let me have it!!
