I ran 13 miles today.
That in and of itself is not terribly remarkable. People run half marathons and half-marathon-distance every day. And I just sat on a bike for 6 hours, so running for less than half that time isn’t a huge deal, either. Granted, this was my longest run since February, but I’ve worked up to it. Nothing huge.
I did, however, plan to go 14 – and even thought at one point that I went 15. I thought I was really moving (for me, anyway!) and even thought I was setting a mini-PR at the 13th mile mark.
See, my Droid, which was already dying a slow death, got dropped from a bike going about 19 a few weeks back. It looks something like this, although I’m unable to show you a picture of the ACTUAL smashed Droid because I’ve been relying on a very, very, very old Blackberry (one of the original ‘Berries) which has no camera, terrible mobile web, and – possibly the worst part – NO GPS.
In the meantime, I really need a new phone. To go along with the new wheels. All my equipment needs replacement this year!
This Saturday, I am signed up for the Daquiri Deck Ocean Swim. I don't really consider this a race. I had originally planned to do the 5k, but since I've already done 2.5 miles and my swimming took a backseat to riding, I chose to jump down in distance. I do 2000-3000 swims regularly, so this will be just a fun swim for me, to keep working on my openwater skills and ocean familiarity. Then, a few nice days in a beautiful place with the B.
I have lots of exciting news on the career front, but I'm keeping that under wraps . . just for now :)
