I run like a girl :-)

I ran 13.1 miles this Sunday. I did it up hill, then down hill, then up hill, then down hill again and a gain and again. It was difficult. It was cold. It was windy. It was challenging. The scenery was breathtaking. I cursed myself outloud at the base of each hill. Running up hill for almost 2 miles in San Francisco is SUCH A RUSH! I'm still high off of my accomplishment. 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 17 minutes. and 40 seconds. Nike Women's Half Marathon, San Fracisco, October 19th, 2008.

QLC, u can do it!! Take your time and don't think about the 5k necessarily. If ur training, just worry about the 1 mile on that day.

Man, everytime I thought about 13.1 miles, my heart would start to burst, so I just focused on 3 miles one day, 5 miles one day. Baby steps. Please keep me updated!
