My unique filter on life

Completed the 13.5 miler

Posted by bunchgrasser on August 26, 2008

Happy days! This past Saturday morning I ran a 13.5 miler which is my new personal distance record. I’ve done 3 half marathons in the past, but never actually ran further than the 13.1 mile distance. I’m happy to report that, other than the general post-run soreness, my feet and legs felt pretty good. It was a little tough climbing out of bed the following day, but so far my heel pain has remained tolerable.

Next up is the 15 mile benchmark, which I hope to run this coming weekend. If that goes well, I’ll move on to the 30k (18.6 mile) benchmark and then (hopefully) run the 21 mile benchmark with my Portland Fit group on September 13.

Wish me luck…
