I am actually feeling optimistic today. I am not hurting too bad from the 15 miles. The blisters I thought I had yesterday were temporary, and my feet are fine. I have a bit of a sunburn on my neck and that is about it. Oh, and I also have the lovely tan that ends above my ankle where my socks hit.
The skirt is cute, no? It is comfy and feels great. It is long enough so that I don't feel like a woman who doesn't realize she is in her 50s (and so are her legs!) I ordered a shirt in the pink color of the trim on the skirt - it should be in this week some time. The color is called "sorbet", doesn't that sound good? The visor was painful to buy because I am still mad at Pearl Izumi for that asinine runner vs. jogger ad campaign - but I really liked the visor the best. It has good sweat absorption and it is comfortable.
I just can't believe that I am optimistic today. Yesterday I thought there was no way I was going to be able to run one more inch than 15 miles. But then I remembered that 2 weeks ago, I hit the wall at 9 miles and barely made the 13.1 miles at the half-marathon. So, maybe it is in the realm of possibilities that I will run 17 miles in 2 weeks! Holy Moly! How did this happen!?!?!?
