For the most part, that's usually a total lie. I'm pretty much an open book and talk about my feelings - often in excess! However, after running (ok maybe I walked it a little) up a hill and stopping at the water stop at mile 5.5 I really didn't want to talk about my feelings. Mostly because my feeling was that I was about to DIE! And we still had 4.5 miles to go. Obviously since I'm writing this i did survive my TEN miles.
Wait...what? Yes I am now a double digit runner! And it feels really good! Well, it feels really good when it's done. It really is an amazing feeling of accomplishment.
I missed the training run with the group last week because I was cave camping with the Cub Scouts. And by camping, yes we did stay the night in the cave. We also did a walking tour (easy) and the wild tour (OMG! total body workout and at some points really scary). Looking back on it, the wild tour was awesome and I would like to do it again - though, definitely not with a large group. However, during the tour, I told Mark repeatedly that I would rather be running. In fact, I think running is way easier.
To go on the wild tour you must be able to fit through this box...Holy Crap!
I went through this box on my stomach, but what they don't tell you is you will have to squeeze through a space this small (I'd argue some of them might be smaller) not only on your stomach, but on your back and sometimes sideways!
It was a lot of fun...but I missed running with my 3/1 no boundaries group. And yes I did my run alone when we got back.
Here are the boys when we were leaving the cave. They were totally exhausted! And so was I!
