8 Mile

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Today my long run (per Hal Higdon's half marathon training plan) reached 8 miles. Very early on in the run, the Eminem movie popped into my head. Though the lyrics from "Lose Yourself" didn't actually come to mind, I'm pretty sure they were present in my subconscious. I had to walk to last quarter of a mile and my knees were not too happy afterwards, but I ultimately made it through what seemed like an impossible task.

Success is my only... option, failure's not...
Feet fail me not, this may be the only opportunity that I got
-Eminem

    YOU DID IT!!!!! Run, walk, or crawl-- you can check mile 8 off the list on your long run.
Done & done.
