I ate 3 beans after 2,4,6,7..... After 6 I was feeling kinda funny... not weak and not light headed, but I felt like my equal librium was off. So I grabbed a GU. I hated it last time I tried it, but I discovered yesterday that when its needed it is GOOD!!!!
At about 6.5 Dad and Jason drove by on an errand and checked to make sure that I was ok. I was !
At 7.5 I got to run back over the interstate! Picture below!
Here is what I have to say about running over on an overpass.... Its better than running under and overpass! (I sprint under bridges to get out from under them). But when I look down off the over pass it make my butt feel funny, like a roller coaster.
Just after the bridge I had another first! A creepy dog! He popped out from nowhere and was a very serious looking dog. Now, Im a dog person for sure. I have three. But I never underestimate the power of a random dog on a run. I slowed my pace drastically, the cars near by slowed down and watched.... I took a snapshot incase he attacked, so we could identify the dog (I'm an over thinker!) He was a very pointy dog as I describe him.... he actually went out of his way to go around me. Whew! I was glad. I told myself "if this dog bites me, I'm running the last .3 miles before anyone picks me up. I'm going 8 miles!
I sprinted my last .1 miles. I couldn't believe I had done it! I did it. 8 miles. I felt as though I was an eternity from the house, actual distance .5 miles... so I took a nice strolling cool down walk back to the house where I had my sis in law snap my "8" pictures and then I cleaned up and enjoyed my nephew's first birthday. Im sore, but not too bad. My pace was about 45 seconds slower than I aimed for, but I finished and that is what I headed out to do. So... next is 9!!!
