42 miles . . .
I thought I would remember the moment with a post because if my knee continues to give me grief around the 10-11 mile mark, I'm not exactly sure how I will finish my first marathon in October.
I have my friend and seasoned runner Michelle to thank for getting me up at the crack of dawn for our long runs and knowing exactly what routes to take and how I should train. I absolutely love my early morning trail runs up Bells' Canyon, even if those first switchbacks are ruthless, it's worth the views and fresh air.
And if it weren't for my sister Jenna, who encouraged me to attempt a marathon, I would never have accomplished this little milestone.
Here's to 26.2 and to keeping all my major joints intact :-).
