I had 18 miles to cover on Sunday, and it looked like I was going to run them alone until. . . Rachel came along. Rachel is another Cleveland Marathon Ambassador; you can check her out here.
What a happy coincidence that Rachel had to run 18 miles, too. . . except she wanted to start at 7:00 AM. In Chagrin Falls, which is 40 minutes away from my house.
|This is EXACTLY how I feel when I realize I need to get up before 5 AM to be ready for a long run on my day off.|
We did two loops of 9 miles. I liked the idea of doing these loops because it wasn't the same loop, and I got to stop by my car to eat a banana and consider a wardrobe change (which I didn't need after all). The hard part (besides getting up so early) was that both loops were ALL HILLS. SO. MANY. HILLS.
|This is EXACTLY how the hills looked. Maybe.|
|My morning view|
|We look pretty good for being about 6 miles from the finish.|
