I had an epic failure mentally and physically on my run yesterday. It was ugly. Like REALLY REALLY REALLY ugly.
Today was a Do Over. It was still as challenging. It took me FOREVER.
As I started out a few blocks from home my dear neighbor George once again pulled aside next to me in his bright yellow Porsche and yelled “Go Andrea Go!!!!!!” Totally made me giggle. He drove next to me for a few blocks and chatted me up then wished me good luck and sent me on my way. After mile 8 I stopped at home to pee. I was on my way out again when I passed George again, raking leaves. He happily asked me how far I had gone. I said, “only 8”. He said as I ran off, “That’s fantastic!!!! Keep it up honey bunny!!!" He was still smiling and yelling at me as I ran off. No clue what he was saying, but I know it was something encouraging. Oh, George….. You rock. :D
My garmin crapped out on me at 14.25. (my RunKeeper didn’t) Not only did I have my longest run since my foot injury (it still hurts a little), I had my longest run EVER.

Running is fucking hard. That is all.
