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.
