The wedding day!


Saturday morning in Lewiston Maine.
Beautiful clear skies
with
temperatures
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!

hi papa! thanks for commenting on my blog, the quick answer to your question is the treadmill was my "out" if i couldn't finish a run, i could just step off and go to the kitchen lol. I run on the road now too so i've progressed. -- Ohio is my birthplace hope all is well up there, and best wishes on the upcoming half marathon!

Looks like a beautiful wedding! Glad your weekend was good - good for you for getting in a long run during a vacation! I am always way too lazy to be that ambitious!
