I ran a 12-miler on Sunday, so I guess you can say training for the Mo' Cowbell Marathon has officially started. It wasn't good.
I ran two laps around Forest Park. The first lap was good. It was lightly raining, a bit cooler than it has been. The second lap was crap. I had to stop to catch my breath about 50 times. I laid down on a bench for a good three minutes. Of course, this all isn't counted in my total time. I'm supposed to do a 13-miler this weekend and I'm scared. I better get my sub 2-hour half marathon this year dammit!
It was too hot to run Saturday morning, so we walked around the neighborhood and I snapped a couple pictures. I love the architecture in Soulard, so beautiful.
Here's hoping this weekend's long run is better!
