Today I ran my second 20 miler, which is my last long run before the marathon. According to the weather on Monday, today was supposed to be 55 degrees, and sunny, beautiful! But it wasn’t. It rained all day Wednesday into the night. I woke up this morning to rain, darkness, and very cold. Due to my somewhat spoiled nature, and stubbornness, I was pissed at the weather, and had no desire to run in footwear, it had to be barefoot.
So I geared up and out the door. It was 39 degrees, wet, and the rain stopped. I was going to do 5 mile loops that would pass my house, just in case I need to get some footwear, but that plan went out the door, once I hit the road it was on. I was going for it barefoot. I always doubt myself. It was a solid run, and I could actually go out right now, at 10:30pm, and run another 4 miles. But past my bedtime. Off to Baltimore tomorrow with the family for a weekend getaway. Celebrating my five year marriage anniversary.
