In general, I consider anything over 6.0 miles to be a â€œlong runâ€ because Iâ€™m running for more than an hour. Per my marathon training plan, I was due for 17.0 miles, but I just couldnâ€™t bear to:
1) run for 3 hours because I still feel a little sick (respiratory illness) and
2) leave my mom for 3 hours!
In the end, I ran 7.0 miles, and Iâ€™m pleased with that. I wore my sweet Terminator Caitlin sunglasses. This is my Terminator Caitlin face:
Really long runs â€“ Iâ€™ll be back (next week).
Anyway, it was a nice run, but I felt a little tired and my nose is still congested. Plus, it was HOT. I donâ€™t know WHY I insist on moping around my hour until 10:30 and then running when the sun is peaking.

Before I left, I had an Arnold Sandwich Thin with blueberries and PB:
And when I got back, I had an Awake Glo Bar.
Ange has a $1,000,000 business on her hands. These granola bars are the most amazing thing Iâ€™ve ever had.
Time to hustle my mom out the door. Iâ€™m saving my appetite for a special lunch with her. If we donâ€™t leave in the next 10 minutes, I will chew off my arm.
I am totally doing that this year!
