This morning I completed the first long run as part of my marathon training plan -- an 8-miler -- while meandering up a country road to the crest of a mountain ridge. The first 5K was rolling, but primarily uphill, while the second 5K was, conversely, a steady downgrade. I made up the rest of the mileage in town with a quick out-and-back and promptly collapsed from the summer heat and humidity. I think I finished in around an hour and 10 minutes.
Except for the grocery prices (!!!), which I'll cover tomorrow!
I'll try to grab my parents' camera and snap some photos of the downtown during all the festival fun for another photo-dump later in the week. For now, I'm off to finish writing an article before Ada wakes from her nap (and rest these tired legs -- I also ran a 5-miler with the jogging stroller last night, ouch)!
