1st Long Run Done!

Today finished off my first week of official Disney Marathon training.  I must say that it was quite eventful.

#1.  It was pouring.  My shoes, socks, and clothes were completely soaked through and my toes were wrinkled.  It was actually very nice because of how cool it was and I really enjoyed myself! 
#2.  There was a nice guy that pulled over to ask me if I needed a ride.  Yes, it was raining but I'm sure it was obvious that I was on a running mission!  I tried to explain to him that I needed to keep running but he didn't seem to understand.  It was pretty funny!
#3.  I was running around my neighborhood and I heard a dog start barking.  It made my heart jump but then I realized that the dog's owner was holding him.  She obviously saw that it scared me so she smiled and waved.  I waved back and kept on my way.  Well, a couple seconds later I realized that the stupid dog was chasing me!  She let him down!  I started sprinting as fast as I could.  I was having chest pain and I was so mad!  UHH, why would she do that?  It took me at least a couple miles to get over it.

I ran 9 miles with a pace of 9:15 min/mile and it was overall a great run.  I feel great and I'm so excited about training again!  Also, in two weeks I'm running in the GULF COAST HALF in Louisiana and I get to see Calee!! 

I hope you are all having fun with your training!
