Accidentally ran 9 miles today...who does that?

My running buddy and I accidentally ran 9 miles today.  I know it sounds silly but we ran the Tobacco Trail which is a common running area in NC (no tobacco is on the trail, btw).  It's an amazingly beautiful trail and the other runners/ walkers/bikers are so nice.  We were planning to do 6 miles today but my running buddy who usually keeps track of the distance messed up.  (I'm "directionally-challenged" so it's not my job).  I was wondering why my feet were hurting towards the end.  LOL.  So, we ran 9 miles and it felt great!  The majority of my life I've been a sprinter but I was never a good distance runner.  But "practice makes perfect," I guess :) I just feel good and I just wanted to encourage you all that you can achieve your goals and more too.

Good luck!

Only crazy people do this :). Good thing you love running, that's a sure way of losing weight, so keep doing it.

I want to become a runner after this baby, maybe one day I will accidentally run 9 miles ;)

Haha Sean and I have done that before, too funny! He kept saying we passed it, we passed it and I didn't believe him. What was suppose to be 3 miles ended up being 6. He wasn't happy with me :)

Sounds like you enjoyed your unexpected longer run though :)

I wish I could accidently run nine miles. I don't even think I can run 1 mile. The other day I was running to a code and felt like I was about to code myself. I am so out of shape. Will you be my personal trainer?? like seriously!

thanks for your comments ladies.
Pegster: I can't stop cracking up at your comment. "only crazy people do this." You are hilarious. You can do it.
Amy: You crack me up. Would love to train with you. I hate that we live 30 minutes apart. I have to talk to you soon to see if we can work something out for one day per week. I'm serious ;)
