Victory! 14 miles down.

I made it... 14 miles.. further than I have ever run.

At the end of the 14 miles... I was pretty happy :-)

I will admit to feeling somewhat nervous about this run.  I found my last long run of 12 miles more difficult than I had been expecting.  This weeks run was to up the miles to 14 – which is further than my prior longest distance which was the Disneyland half marathon last September.

Although again it was no walk-in-the-park I managed to complete the run without feeling I was at the limit of my capabilities.  This week it was far cooler than last week – I think that was the major difference.

The route this week took us back up to the Rose Bowl north trails and into the canyon behind the JPL site.   That was absolutely beautiful and worth a return visit just for the wonderful scenery.

Thanks so much to my running partners this week including Fundraising Captain, Christie and my teammates Richard and Liz.

Next Saturday it will be 16 miles.   WOW!
