This morning I ran my first 20 miler of this training cycle, and in doing so I passed the 1,700 mile mark for the 2,015 in 2015 challenge I'm a part of. At my current rate of progress, I should hit my goal by the end of November, over a month ahead of schedule. It will be nice to celebrate the Philly Marathon and the end of this challenge simultaneously.
I also got to wear my Boston shirt for the first time since last spring, so all around an exciting day.
The 20 miler, incidentally, was a decent training run. I broke it up into three legs, passing by the Cooper River and a brief section of trail by Newton Lake, and stopping by my house twice for water and gels. I felt good throughout - no pain or excessive fatigue at all. Could have easily kept going. I guess that's the mark of a good long run if I feel like I still had plenty left in me at the end.
