Well, the J-Squad has successfully completed the Akron Marathon.


Myself? I ran my 7.9 mile leg in 80:33. That's a 10:12 mile pace, held for 8 miles. For me, that's unbelievably fast. The best I think I've run 8 miles before was at a 10:30 pace if not even slower than that.

I've officially run 323.25 miles in 2010.

More on the race and running in general... with photos and NERDY GRAPHS! )

I think in the end it comes back to my life's-motto: You can't do everything, but you can do anything. I gave up a lot of other things to run: it takes up a lot of time and energy and spoons, and requires a lot of planning and dedication and time carved out from your week, but in the end I pulled my best time ever and really close to my goals at a 10:12 mile pace and if my asthmatic, flu-beaten, ultimately lazy ass can do this, I can do freaking anything. So there, Heartrate Hill and Towpath Trail. So there.

♥ Congrats to us!
