I'm a Runner!

After last Saturday’s complete shit show of a run, I knew I had some problem solving to do. I suspected it was my shoes. I am a cheap ass and since my 2 half marathons I wore Asics,  I decided the brightest thing to do was to go to the outlet and get some new ones!

11 miles

A few weeks ago, I cried tears of frustration while I was running. Every Saturday is my long run for the week in my training plan for the NYC marathon. Last Saturday was 11 miles, and I was having a shitty run. I started out feeling awesome, but somewhere around mile 5 ½, I started feeling pain. Right below my knees my legs ached, and the last three toes on my left foot were cramping so bad they started to feel like they were on fire! “You are not in pain, you are just imagining shit” I told myself.

I won! Now what?!
