The perfect Long Run!!!

I was not planning on posting anything today but I have to!
I went for 9 miles this morning.

It was my best LONG RUN ever.
It was perfect.
I am so happy.
The weather was perfect: cool, no wind, no sun (well not really just a shy sun, now as I type this it is out for real!! )
I got up at 5:15 am.
I ran with my babysitter and her friend.  2 young 26 yrs old to keep me company, I loved it!
They did 6 miles and I continued alone for the rest of my run.
The 6 with them went by so fast.  I was able to talk to them the whole time, no side pain.
I drank NUUN only and took some sports jelly beans (watermelon with caffeine).
I ran at a faster pace then last week's LR (8 miles), about 14 sec faster.
I am not going to lie I felt GREAT saying goodbye to them and being the one who continues for 3 more miles...and being the older one. :)

Did you leave me a question for my Q&A?
No? well please do,  right here
Thank you to those who did!!!

No better feeling!

Great. Yeah, this morning was perfect running weather. Down here there was a marine layer on the coast that didn't burn off until after my run. My g.f. met me half way and rode her bike with me. It really helps to run with someone else, passes the time quicker. As exhibited in your run too.

Great job! It's awesome how a gal of 32 (or maybe you're 33;), I can't remember) can keep going after the 26'ers stop!!!

Caroline said...

Not 32 or 33...I wish!

awesome! I know it is generally hotter in So Cal as compared to Norcal, but the weather literally has been perfect in Nor cal too this week - low 70s, zero humidity, no wind. Perfect running weather. This week is what California is all about.

Great run! Way to outlast the younger friends! I confess that I felt pretty great when I did that too.
