Longest run ever!

I ran my longest run yesterday. I ran just over 20 miles. It was slow & painful. I ran slow at the beginning so my time was really slow (4 hours & 18 minutes & 28 seconds!), but I believe it allowed me to finish the 20 mi. Don't think I would have been able to finish it if I had run my regular 7 minutes/km.

Here is the mapped out run from Runkeeper:

One Week to Marathon!

I have 1 week until the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon! I'm a little nervous, but just going to take it easy this week in my training.

A reminder that I will be running for the Assaulted Women’s Helpline.

Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon is tomorrow!!

I will be running my 1st marathon tomorrow. I'm a little nervous, but not as nervous as my 1st half-marathon last year. My nerves aren't about getting there and being on time like last year, but more "am I going to finish this thing". That's where I am a little scared. Yes, I've done all the training but I'm afraid my body will give out on me. Just need to make sure my body is well rested before the run.

1st Marathon Complete

I ran my 1st marathon today! Some how I managed to survive. Not sure how yet. I have to give credit to the little girls passing out bananas on Queen st. I think that saved my ass.

Here is the runkeeper map. Unfortunately my GPS went out on me around 25km, so I had to stop & restart Runkeeper as it crashed on me. So the times aren't accurate but the final time & routing are correct.
