World Run Day - 7 November 2010 - Summary
Today was World Run Day, and it coincided with my first ever 20 mile run. I had been looking forward to this run, because as you know I have not been having such a great time on the running front. Well, the first few miles were fine, then it started getting a bit challenging and finally it seemed like these miles were stretching on into eternity! But I got through it all, and ran miles 19 and 20 hard. Afterwards I needed a brief rest before getting into the shower, so that I could collect my thoughts and muscles, both of which seemed to have gone on a walkabout.
I am going to Philadelphia. I booked my flight, and I will book my hotel shortly. Unfortunately Stuart will be away in Switzerland, and not here for an exam I am taking on the 18th, my marathon, my birthday, and Thanksgiving! That's too bad, but I am going to make sure that I have a rocking time all the same. In a way, it's quite exciting, as I hope to have lots to tell him when he gets back.
Anyway, many thanks to everyone who joined me on World Run Day - I thought about all of you as I was mashing through the miles. I really appreciated it, and as you may know, World Run Day is rather special to me. Indeed, shortly before getting out of the door, I did wonder if today might indeed be the day that the sky fell on my head. As you can see, it didn't.
I have a small thank you to send to all those who participated in World Run Day, so please send me your addresses.....In the meantime, thanks to Johann, and to Stefano who I definitely know have participated.
