The wedding day!
Saturday morning in Lewiston Maine.
Beautiful clear skies
around 40 degrees. I was hoping to get a 14 or 15 mile run in on Saturday or Sunday based on my schedule with the family.
I used the web site favoriterun.com to put together a 14 mile out and back route. To familiarize myself with the route I went out and drove it but somehow missed a turn and got lost. I left the map back at the hotel. After driving around an extra 30 minutes I made it back to the hotel. Feeling tired and a little aggravated of getting lost I decided to just run for 20 minutes. Oh well Sunday was another opportunity for a long run.
The wedding was beautiful followed with a fun reception.
Sunday morning was a repeat of Saturday's weather conditions. I had a better route picked out which was a 14 mile loop. The moment I took my first few steps I knew this was the day for a good run. My energy was fresh which was fueled from a banana and a carboom gel washed down with 8 oz. Water. The run went well. No water or gels needed during the run. And I finished in 1:46:06. I had a nice 4 day break with lots of good food, family, and fun!
