Glass half full

Yesterday I met the half-way mark in my marathon training: 13 glorious, unforgiving miles!

The night before my run I stayed awake until 3 a.m., painting part of a mural at Denison's coffee shop and drinking beer with friends. I didn't plan on running the next day, but agreed with C that we should do our long run on Saturday since we had time. My late night really undermined my running--I was dehydrated and had trouble getting into a good stride. I managed to complete 135 minutes of running but decided that until I run a marathon, I'm not going to drink any alcohol. Maybe after a few months of no beer, I'll lose the habit of buying it or drinking socially. I hope to replace beer with homemade juice full of vitamins and antioxidants!

FYI, here's what I painted on Friday:

Good life go!

  1. enjoying a beer should come AFTER your long weekend runs, not before :)
