Todays long run was the hardest so far. I had no energy. I struggled and all I wanted to do was walk. For some parts I ran at a super slow pace that I’m pretty sure people thought I was walking. At around mile 8 I started slowing down and decided to walk the rest. Yes I was determined to walk 3 miles. As I approached the end of the street I saw a security guard and he was cheering me on. It was exactly what I needed. I needed the motivation to continue running. So I ran and waved and smiled back. Sometimes you have good runs and sometimes you have bad runs. Just keep going. After 2 hours and 4 minutes I completed 11.08 miles. I’m glad I didn’t give up.
