We move out tomorrow and we still have so much to pack. I. Am. So. Exhausted.
But I am exhausted for a great reason! I had an 18 mile run on the schedule for today. This was a run I had been dreading and the timing was terrible. A super long run the weekend we move? Not the best, but I literally had no choice.
But I tackled the beast!! Yes, I noticed too late that Emigration is spelling wrong. My bad.
I got a couple friends to run the first half with me which was so great!! We woke up at 4 am and started at 5:30 in the darkness and kept a really steady pace. Running in the dark was actually fun and I loved not being able to see how much farther we had to go. After some wind, rain, and having to stop for more water twice, I finished 18.3 miles with an average pace of 10:40, which I'm pretty proud of for that distance. Although my legs ache and I'm so beyond tired, it feels amazing knowing I did that today. I am really proud of myself!
And I rewarded myself accordingly.
Back to packing and enjoying this amazing storm!
