I ran 8.5 miles today, which is the most I've run in...so long I don't remember when it was that I ran further.
It was along the bike trail in Lincoln. I ran to Woonsocket, and walked back with Jeremy who kindly bestowed water and food gifts.
We've done this pattern before, but I've never run so far that I hit the "17" mile marker. I ran faster than I anticipated, I suppose, and beat Jeremy to the parking lot.
So yes. That was exciting. The weather was beautiful. It was a day I didn't have to work and could be outside for 5 hours. There was much joy.
Ps. We will not discuss what happened regarding ice cream, however. I blame the online magic 8 ball.
